Niteflyte - Niteflyte II (1981)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Niteflyte - Niteflyte (1979)

By request (sort of), here's Niteflyte's second and final album. Smooth, pop-oriented funk/soul filtered through a cocaine-coated sheen of disco. To me, it doesn't quite match the triumph that was their first record, but there's plenty to like here, such as the plastic reggae of "Shoot from the Hip" and the breezy groove of "On Your Own".

Track listing:
1. You Are
2. You're Breaking My Heart
3. Shoot from the Hip
4. Anyway You Want
5. Sexy Dancer
6. On Your Own
7. Alicia's Song
8. I Knew It Couldn't Happen

The day's finally here

  1. Gotta admit, that first album cover was better, too
