Artist: Guy
Description:
This pivotal 1988 album combined old-school soul with the then-new art form of rapping, creating a whole new urban-music hybrid. Released almost 20 years later, this special edition contains six bonus tracks, and allows the public to rediscover the scintillating vocal harmonies of Guy. Audio Mixer: Timmy Regisford. Audio Remixers: Teddy Riley; Gene Griffin; Timmy Regisford. Recording information: Chung King Studios, New York, NY; Hillside Studios, Englewood, NJ; Quantum Studios, Jersey City, NJ; Sound Works Studios, New York, NY; Unique Studios, New York, NY. Photographer: Gary Schultz. Arrangers: Teddy Riley; Gene Griffin. One of the most seminal and influential releases of late '80s, Guy's self-titled debut album did more than its part to popularize new jack swing, a style that would soon become inescapable on urban contemporary radio. Teddy Riley didn't actually invent new jack swing with Guy -- he'd already gotten the ball rolling on Keith Sweat's 1987 debut Make It Last Forever -- but this album did more than any other to make it so incredibly popular in the R&B world. With their tough blend of hip-hop, R&B, and Gap Band-influenced funk, hits like "Groove Me" and "Teddy's Jam" defined new jack swing and served as the blueprint for countless new jack recordings in the late '80s and early to mid-'90s. One shameless Guy clone after another would pop up on urban radio, the vast majority of whom weren't even a fraction as inventive as Riley's distinctive trio. For anyone with even a casual interest in new jack, this CD is absolutely essential. [MCA issued a two-disc edition of the album in 2007.] ~ Alex Henderson

Editorial Reviews:
Spin (p.84) - "Guy's music emphasized positive dance groove over attitude. The percussive 'Teddy's Jam' almost qualifies as a sophisticated new breed of small-unit jazz." Vibe (12/99, p.158) - Included in Vibe's 100 Essential Albums of the 20th Century - "...took the best of both worlds [retro-soul and new-school rap] and created new jack swing....changed the sound of black music forever."
