Item Description

Ray Parker Jr’s 1981 album A Woman Needs Love has been Expanded for the First Time Ever

Expanded with 3 Bonus Tracks

Produced by Ray Parker Jr

Includes the chart smash "A Woman Needs Love (Just Like You Do)"

Re-Mastered from the Original Master Tapes by Sean Brennan, at Battery Studio’s, New York

A Woman Needs Love is the fourth and final album by the group Raydio, led by guitarist/singer/songwriter Ray Parker, Jr.

The album included eight tracks, but this time, all of them were written and produced by Parker himself, which was released in 1981.

This gave Raydio their biggest pop hit in the form of the title track, which peaked at #4 on the US Chart, #1 on the US R&B Chart and #11 on the US Adult Contemporary Chart.

The release was followed by two more singles; "That Old Song" and "It's Your Night". The album itself was certified gold by the RIAA.

"A Woman Needs Love (Just Like You Do)," a clever and efficient slice of adult contemporary bubblegum R&B, addressed men, appealed to women, and threw in a shrewd reference to "Jack and Jill."

The album's other two charting singles -- "It's Your Night," a soft funk number featuring Cheryl Lynn, and the wistful "That Old Song," where Gene Page-arranged strings play.

Other notables include the very Heatwave/Rob Temperton-like "All In The Way You Get Down," as well as "Still in the Groove," a sequel instrumental funk hit "For Those Who Like to Groove."

As usual, RPJ's likable, sly, and affable nature makes the material go down easy.
