The 8th Day's Second Album is a bit of an elusive one despite eventually becoming Reasonably big they were still finding their tune here.This time around they had renegade Lyman Woodard in the group for a brief period. He contributes to this LP in a major way with the killer instrumental cut and homage too Dope, Cheba. The rest of the LP is about God so we can guess Lyman's personal religious high at the time. This as an almost Psychedelic work of Funk genius and it sucks you right in like the title promises. Long been sought, and really very hard to turn up.

You owe it yourself to listen to this band. The were best known for "You Gotta Crawl (Before You Walk)" about a man who crawled back into his woman's arms after talking her love for granted. But their pedigree came from singer-songwriter/producer Lamont Dozier who along with the Holland brothers wrote hits for The Supremes and Later Diana Ross and the Supremes.
They left Motown and formed Hot Wax and then Lamont Dozier formed invictis records. The 8th Day could beg better than Brian McKnight, they were on par with LTD. This recording will make you want more. It will inivite you to laugh and cry, make romance and live till you die.
