"Listen to 80s classic funk soul like never before on Get On Down's reissue of Intimate Connection, the 1984 release by New York-based disco/funk group Kleeer. Abounding with smooth, sliding grooves, seductive lyrics, and classic 80s electro-funk synth, Intimate Connection is a classic piece that should hold a place in any music lover's collection. The album's title track not only climbed the R&B charts in 1984 but served years later as the baseline for Tupac's giant hit, 'California Love' in 1995. Woody Cunningham, the group's drummer, writer, vocalist and co-producer, sadly passed away in January of 2010, but left behind him a music repertoire that continues to hit the airwaves today. Kleeer's unforgettable funk style has been sampled further by artists such as Ice Cube and Jay Z, and Woody's lyrical talents can be found in collaborations with current hip hop songstress Alicia Keys. Intimate Connection, the group's sixth album on Atlantic Records, provides a classic and timeless snapshot of 80s funk groove. Appreciate the music of Kleeer like never before on this digitally remastered exclusive CD release." Packaged in a heavy mini-LP style cover in a dust sleeve with obi strip.
