Shakatak: Night Birds (1982)

Ok, so I said one album each week, but I thought two would be good to mark my return.

This is probably one of the best albums from one of my favourite groups. Features two hit singles “Easier Said Than Done” and “Night Birds”. It certainly cemented their reputation as one of the U.K.s premier Jazz Funk bands.
