  • 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…
