I'm not a huge Rick James fan but he does have a couple of songs I enjoy. I would recommend this album to fans of Alternative Pop as well as R&B.

Street Songs is a Rick James concept album released in April 1981 via Gordy Records. "Give It to Me Baby", the lead song and single from the album, became James' second number one single on the R&B chart. It spent five weeks at the top spot. The fifth song on the album, "Super Freak", was also one of James' biggest hits. A Deluxe Edition was released in 2001 containing an additional 17 mixes and live versions of the album tracks. Although the song "Fire and Desire" (a duet he performed with singer Teena Marie) was not originally released as a single, the song itself received much airplay on R&B radio stations and has since become a classic hit. (James and Marie would reunite to perform the song at the 2004 BET Awards a few months before James' death.)

From Super Freak.............Three's not a crowd to her, she says
"Room 714, I'll be waiting"
When I get there she's got incense, wine and candles
It's such a freaky scene
