Produced by Ralph MacDonald of Calypso Breakdown fame, Love When I'm in Your Arms Bobbi Humphrey's 1979 disco 12" release is a disco joyous romp. Lots of tasty percussion and breaks. A real zippy funky throw-down.
Bobbi Humphrey is actually know for her jazz work as a flautist who worked with Stevie Wonder and Duke Ellington among others. She performed on Another Star, one of the best tracks on the Stevie Wonder double l.p. Songs in the Key of Life. She was also the first female signed to the seminal jazz label Blue Note.

BABY DON'T YOU KNOW
Her next 12" single effort came in 1982 with the mighty production by Roy Ayers for the seminal underground funky disco label Uno Melodic. The one which brought us Ladies of the 80's and the illustrious Sylvia Striplin. This time Bobbi wrote, arranged and co-produced the number, Baby Don't You Know.
