Lunch Break: Rick James, “Mr. Policeman”

Listening to Stevie Wonder’s Master Blaster the other day, I was put in mind of this one from Rick James’ classic “Street Songs” album.

It’s pretty much a direct rip of Stevie’s style, but that just means it sounds great, too. And actually the rest of the record is really good, even the songs that are more like Rick James, like Super Freak.

Inspirational verse: I’d rather be a farmer than a police, police.

Ps. That’s Stevie Wonder himself playing the harmonica on Mr. Policeman.
