• Herbie Hancock has always been at the cutting edge of popular music; Herbie rose to fame as a member of Miles Davis’s pathfinding acoustic quintet, whose music helped define a new kind of Jazz. And “Sunlight” & “Feets Don’t Fail Me Now” were certainly a different style of Jazz.

• Originally released in 1978 & 1979 Herbie was experimenting with vocal sounds using the vocoder, and the results were amazing, and moved Jazz into the Disco arena.

• Combining these two albums in one package Robinsongs lets you relive that magic period. “Sunlight” features the single ‘I Thought It Was You’ which went Top 20 in the UK, Herbie’s first hit single in the U.K. And the album went Top 30.

• “Feets Don’t Fail Me Now” replicated “Sunlight” by also having a Top 20 single ‘You Bet Your Love’ and the album also went Top 30.

• This Robinsongs package also includes the 7” single versions of ‘I Thought It Was You’, ‘You Bet Your Love’, ‘Ready Or Not’, ‘Tell Everybody’ and ‘Honey From The Jar’ as bonus tracks, along with 12” versions of ‘You Bet Your Love’ and ‘Tell Everybody’.
