Description:
Commodores is a self-titled album released in 1977 by the Commodores.

Reception



The band employed a variety of musical stylings for the album, highlighted by the popular sex anthem "Brick House". With Walter Orange's squeaking/growling voice on the lead, and Ronald LaPread's roundtone bassline, this cut peaked on the U.S. Hot 100 at #5, and the U.S. R&B Chart at #4. As their second single, "Brick House" helped propel the Commodores into the spotlight as a premier R&B act.

In contrast to "Brick House", "Easy" is a pop-souls ballad featuring mellow vocals by Lionel Richie with a Southern country twist. A famous cover of "Easy" was done by the band Faith No More.

"Zoom" is one of the Commodores best known tunes despite not being released as a single in the US. It reached #38 on the UK singles chart. Fergie sampled "Zoom" in her song "All That I Got (The Make-Up Song)" from the album The Dutchess.

In the UK this album was released as "Zoom" on Tamla Motown STML 12057.
