Kashif - Kashif (1983)

Artist:  Kashif
Title:  Kashif
Release: 1983
Format:  LP
Label:  Arista Records
Catalog#  205347

“Kashif” is a the self-titled debut of Kashif. It was a hit that put him on the music scene with his R&B single "I Just Gotta Have You". The album also includes the hits "Stone Love", "Help Yourself to My Love", and "Say Something Love".
Kashif burst onto the music scene with his Billboard R&B single "I Just Gotta Have You." His urgent delivery oozes with vibrancy accompanied by a poppin' rhythm arrangement and some solid change-ups. It peaked at number five after 20 weeks. "Stone Love" commissions a funky bassline and seductive background vocals which contrast Kashif's zealous intonations. With its moderately aggressive rhythm, "Help Yourself to My Love" finds the Brooklyn native patiently cradling the lyric. This album has one good composition after another. Kashif's adamant deliveries are poisely contrasted by cooing background. Though there are no authentic string and horn ensemble, the fomer B.T. Express member gets optimal use of his sythnesizers and keyboards.
