On the second Ray Parker, Jr. & Raydio proper album, and Rays fourth overall 1981s A Woman Needs Love, it pretty much picks up where 1980s Two Places At The Same Time left off. The recording blends Rays penchant for catchy melodic grooves, anthemic songs for the respect, carnal desires from women, and butt shaking dance grooves. Three singles were culled from what would be the last Ray Parker, Jr. & Raydio proper album. First single, and one of the bands highest charting Pop entry, was the albums title track which hit No. 1 on Billboards Hot R&B Singles chart. The song also hit No. 4 on Billboards Hot 100 Pop Singles chart, and No. 11 on Billboards Adult Contemporary chart. With all the accolades that were bestowed upon Ray Parker, Jr, and his talented band mates, it seems like they never truly received the recognition they deserved as a band, san Rays solo career. The band itself were, and still to this day, talented musicians that shouldve been recognized more prominently. Another musician that bore from that camp, the late Mr. Jerry Knight, was another mega talent musician that shouldve shone much brighter than industry allowed. Special shout outs to Mr. Arnell Carmichael, Mr. Larry Tolbert, Mr. Darren Carmichael, Mr. Vincent Bonham, Ms. Deborah Thomas, and studio session greats, Mr. Ollie Brown, and Mr. Charles Fearing.
