Go For It

It is Thurdsay and as some party people like to call it 'Little Friday'.  So here is a song to get you through the last part of the week.  "Go For It"  comes from what was Shalamar's fifth album released in 1981 on the Solar record label called Go For It.  The album features 'classic' Shalamar line-up (Jeffrey Daniel, Howard Hewett and Jody Watley). Daniel has confirmed that Go For It and Friends were recorded at the same time.  However because of distribution disputes due to changing of labels, this album didn't get the promotion it deserved and the garish cover-art was also the subject of negative comment.  I actually love the cover! The only single released was "Sweeter as the Days Go By" and the album  only peaked at #18 on the R&B chart and #115 on the Billboard chart.  I simply love this song not only for the message but also for the great violin breaks. Happy little Friday and enjoy!
