L Is For Lover as Al Jarreau recently described to us is one of those albums that his international audience knows every song, the track order, the lyrics, who played on the album, etc. In other words, this 1986 masterwork is truly a fan favorite.
This Nile Rodgers (David Bowie, Chic, Madonna) produced gem included some very incredibly strong material with hits like Tell Me What I Gotta Do, L Is For Lover and stellar album cuts like Johnathan Butler's Give A Little More Lovin' and Al Jarreau's own Says and the jazz groover Across The Midnight Sky.
You can also see why the fans agree that this is a very special album from Al Jarreau as it includes world class musicians like Nile Rodgers, Steve Ferrone, Anthony Jackson, Hiram Bullock, Lisa Fischer and Phillip Saisse.
It is with much honor to announce another installment in the extensive Al Jarreau Remaster Series here at Friday Music with his smash album L Is For Lover/The Deluxe Edition.
