Come & Get Yourself Some (CD)Leon Haywood
Almost two decades after its original release in 1975, the smooth, sensual bass groove of Leon Haywood’s “I Want to Do Something Freaky to You” was an unmistakable, constant presence on radio airwaves across the country—although the song itself was not. Thanks to Dr. Dre, who sampled Haywood’s hit for his own smash single “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” in 1992, a new generation of listeners were introduced to the Texas-born soul and funk singer, whose biggest hits (including the Dre-sampled track) appear on Come and Get Yourself Some. “I Want to Do Something Freaky to You” was the centerpiece, becoming a Top 20 hit on the Pop charts, but the album reflected Haywood‘s talent for mid-tempo, laid-back R&B with songs like “This Feeling’s Extra Rated” and the bold, funky title track.
A rare treat for soul/funk collectors lucky enough to find it, Come and Get Yourself Some becomes the latest classic title resurrected and refurbished by Get On Down, featuring a sparkling new audio transfer from the original analog tapes and presented in a digipak case.
