Pressure Drop is the second solo album by Robert Palmer, released in 1975. Palmer is backed by Little Feat and other musicians. The title track is a cover version of the reggae hit by Toots & the Maytals. However, many other songs on the album use "New Orleans funk. along with smooth, dated disco ballads smothered in strings"

Produced by Steve Smith. Pressure Drop Lyrics. you wrong I said when it drops, you're gonna feel it, how it's been doin' you wrong I said pressure drop, whoa pressure yeah pressure's gonna drop on you I said pressure drop, whoa pressure yeah pressure's gonna drop on you It is you, oh yeah It is you, oh yeah Mmmmm, nmmmmmmm, mmmmmm, yeah Mmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmmm yeah

Named after the massive reggae hit from Toots & the Maytals and the excellent cover version Palmer performs here, Pressure Drop is sometimes wrongly sold as the singer's first island-styled album. Past the title cut, Feat and the New Orleans funk of the Meters are much bigger influences, along with smooth, dated disco ballads smothered in strings. The latter numbers are what make the album too blue-eyed and polished for fans of Palmer's more gutsy moments, but the soft songs are well written and convincing, especially the opening "Give Me an Inch

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). This 1975 album still holds up as one of the very best ones that Robert Palmer recorded, but it doesn't seem to get the praise it deserves, sandwiched between his amazing debut solo effort, "Sneaking Sally Through the Alley" and his more popular MTV-hyped albums and singles in the 1980s. Palmer does a superb job of covering songs by Toots & the Maytals (the title track), the Lowell George/Little Feat gem "Trouble", and Allen Toussaint's "River Boat.
