Featuring backing vocals by The Meditations and The Diamonds, this is perhaps Lee Perry's smoothest production, a real polished gem. George Faith is a first rate crooner, even if some of his choices for covers border on cheesy. Highlights include the impassioned "I've Got The Groove" and the lovely title track, a cover of William Bell's "I Forgot To Be Your Lover". Sadly, this album has been out of print for many years, save for a limited edition CD release in 2003.
