Rick James: Cold Blooded (Motown)
Barney Hoskyns, New Musical Express, August 1983
IN THE freak funk stakes, high-livin devil-may-care Rick James rates as a bit of a clown. As youll know if you caught his Rockpalast TV gig, the man is formidably uncool, and wont think twice about dragging Mary Jane to 11 hippie-ish minutes if itll make a bunch of Krauts chortle a little longer.
