Today we celebrate the birthday of George Benson, a legend in more realms of music than we’re going to take time to count up, but we are going to set aside a few minutes and a few paragraphs to spotlight his first album of the ‘80s, an LP which not only topped both the R&B and Jazz charts but also. delivered a title track which became the biggest pop hit of his career. Produced by Quincy Jones, GIVE ME THE NIGHT was actually the first album to be released on Jones’s then-new label, Qwest Records, which made it a relatively high-profile LP from the get-go.

Reviews:
  • Qiahmagha
A unique album joining the talents of the best Quincy Jones team -Bruce Sweiden, Rod Temperton, Patti Austin, etc..- to make a George Benson in one of his best moments shine like the star he is.More than aging well, some songs are becoming timeless.
  • Kegal
Only a couple of standouts on this one but they more than make up for the remaining tracks.
  • Mojind
A couple? 3/4 of the album are standouts.
