The one thing Gap Band VI (six) does more than previous albums did is introduce you buying public to the band; Charlie Wilson: Lead Vocals, Keyboards, Percussion. Ronnie Wilson: Keyboards, Percussion. Robert Wilson: Bass, Lead Guitar, Percussion. Numbering the albums was OK at first, but then not bothering with the covers, like this one, is a bit sad, they did stop soon after.
Still, on with today's song another written by Raymond Calhoun I Found My Baby, who also shares backing vocals with Pennye Ford on this track, Goodie Whitfield is on Keyboards. I'll be honest this is the only track I play from this album, but it's worth including. It does tend to sound a bit like The Fatback Bands' I Found Lovin' released in 1983.
