Notes: (Japan )
‘Azz Izz’ was the second of Ren Woods solo albums. It was produced by Chuck Jackson for Elektra and released in 1982. It has an early 80s vibe. The up-tempo tunes like ‘Hire Love’ and ‘You’re The One’ exude a good time feel. Try too the ultra quick Prince penned ‘I Don’t Wanna Stop’. The ex-Sundays Child vocalist can blast a ballad too as ‘Take Me To Heaven’ proves. ‘Lovin Power’ is another good groove. Woods was more renowned (still is) as an actress (‘Roots’, ‘Car Wash’) than as a singer but ‘Azz Izz’ illustrates she is talented vocally too.
