Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

1974 was a big year for The Ohio Players, after years of hard work, a plethora of fine recordings and tours, their fifth album "Skin Tight" would become all the things you would want for a hit album- multi-platinum hit songs, #1 chart sales in r&b, top #10 pop, and multiple radio formats all over the dial.

"Skin Tight" was the perfect song for the perfect time. People wanted to dance again, and this amazing band from Ohio had all the crucial elements to deliver a song for the ages. The Ohio Players finally hit the big time after many years of touring and regional success with a plethora of singles and albums for smaller labels.

When the signed with Mercury Records, things changed in a big way, as their sound not only was heard by the soul crowd, but it brought in first time rockers, jazz, and pop listeners and a major push from radio and massive television exposure with shows like "In Concert" "Midnight Special" and "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert,"

The chart topping album was filled with more great fare like "Steakin' Cheek To Cheek" "Jive Turkey" as well as the soul balladry of "Heaven Must Be Like This" which would all become instant classics which have stood the test of time now for over four decades.

Featuring the guitar and vocals of the late great front man Leroy "Sugarfoot" Bonner, his guitar and vocal wizardry along with the keyboard and vocals of the great Billy Beck, along with the musical geniuses of Clarence Satchell, James "Diamond" Williams, Marvin Pierce, Marshall Jones and Ralph Middlebrooks, the Ohio Players were surely on top of their game and for a very long time afterwards thanks to the songs and musicianship displayed on this celebrated album.

Friday Music is very pleased to announce the second in a series of super limited 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl releases from the great Ohio Players with their ground breaking and chart topping masterpiece "Skin Tight."

The first time ever 180 Gram Vinyl release will also be manufactured for a super limited run on turquoise vinyl and it will also be featured in the striking gatefold album cover artwork not seen in years.

Produced by The Ohio Players and mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Ohio Players/Earth Wind and Fire) from the original Mercury Records tapes, this fine album will become one of the more important funk album revisits in many years.
