The Time – Get It Up

In posse on 2008/08/07 at 2:15 am

Perhaps I failed to mention that the high point of my trip to Las Vegas back at the beginning of July involved going to see Morris Day & The Time at the Flamingo Hotel Showroom. Not only was Jerome Benton in the house, but both Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis were also present, making for a seriously authentic and funky show. It was great to hear them play all of their hits (and even some of their stinkers sounded good!), but the cherry on top for me was “Get It Up,” easily my jam of jams from The Time. Check it out – the shit still sounds fresh! And yes, if it sounds like Prince, it’s because it is. The lil prodigy wrote almost everything on The Time’s self titled debut in 1981, long before his rise to pop royalty.
