This album is tight. Had this album since it dropped in ‘97′ and it still gets played. Just keep the album on for every track. No weak links here. Hot tracks are #1 #2 #4 #5 #7 #9 #11. My favourite song is #9 Baby You Are which is a Boyz 2 Men type love ballad. Bottom line is, that if you like Boyz 2 Men then I promise you will love this joint. Buy it if u aint got it!
Arguably the bands best record! This version, from Mayhem Records, contains a 2nd disc featuring 4 songs captured live – including ’Your River,’ ’A Sea to Suffer In,’ ’Your Shameful Heaven,’ and fan favorite ’The Forever People’. Last remaining quantities on the this 2 CD version.

Working in music resale, (I sell here on Amazon!) I’m very attentive as to what albums sell and what ones don’t. This one, sadly, is in the “don’t” catagory. It only spawned one minor radio hit, which was mostly because of Boyz II Men doing the backing vocals. That really is radio’s loss, as this album has plenty of smooth R&B grooves. Many of my favorite albums are in that “don’t sell well” catagory, and this one just got added to that list. Unlike many R&B albums, Uncle Sam is consistant on nearly every track, with a romantic sound that just makes you want to hold your signifigant other tight. The weakest track here is his cover of the Force MD’s classic “Tender Love”, which still isn’t bad. The slow jams with soulful crooning makes me think Barry White meets Keith Sweat, and the presence of Boyz II Men’s flawless harmonies adds a lot. While hadrly a musical landmark, Uncle Sam is an album that simply feels good. For as little as it sells used here on Amazon, if you like good soulful R&B jams, I highly recommend spending a few dollars and adding it to your collection. Even if you only like a few songs, you at least won’t feel like you got ripped off. I sure hope this album’s lack of success doesn’t stop Uncle Sam from recording a follow up, as I know myself and the few others who have taken the time to really get into this album are eagerly waiting for it.– Dan Dan Leimone…
I really liked the album. I wish he would’ve came up with another one. I guess he was a one hit wonder.
Uncle Sam was a very talented singer who never fully got the recongtion he deserved. With his self titled debut Sam took it back to what true R&B should be. Standout tracks include Someone Like You,his cover of Tender Love and the lead single I Don’t Ever Want To See You Again.
I was actually looking up something online when the reviews from Amazon came up during my search… I went ahead and read them and it touched me that this album has not only touched a few of you, but became what many of the writers had hoped… timeless… Here we are seven years later and you are still buying it. Although the label (Stonecreek Recordings) is now no more, and from what I understand Sam tried with an independent label since (I am not sure on what is happening), this was an amazing experience for me… I know it was for Sam… and especially Boyz II Men. I was just talking to one of my best friends about the MANY tracks that did not make the album… there are so many that supercede the eleven tracks on here… “Can You Feel It”… “I Don’t Ever Want to See You Again”… and “Baby You Are” were all great singles and again, I would like to thank you all on behalf of those involved for your positive feedback. No I am not still working with the guys, but again, this project was one we were very, very close to. There were a few artists to come out of the Creek through Boyz II Men, but Uncle Sam kicked it off… and it was amazing how the second single “I Don’t Ever Want to See You Again” took off! I remember the first time we all saw Sam perform it… there was not a dry eye in the place… We wanted to find whoever sparked that emotion out of him and beat her down! LOL And Nathan Morris did an OUTSTANDING job with this particular song. Well I could spend forever going down memory lane, but I won’t. I just wanted to let you all know that people do read these reviews and again, on behalf of everyone involved… THANKS! (and no I don’t get a penny from the product or endorsing it, LOL… I just thought it was good too! I STILL listen to my copies! LOL)
