Herbie Hancock: Sound-System (Columbia)
J.D. Considine, Musician, November 1984
DON'T MAKE the mistake of turning up your nose at this because it's "another goddamn rock record." Don't even fall for the line that Sound-System is nothing more than Rockit, Vol. 2. Granted, it makes no apologies about being a dance record, but then, neither did 'One O'Clock Jump'. Above all, this album marks the final revitalization of Hancock's recording career.
