Nightshift is the 11th studio album by the Commodores, released by Motown Records on January 15, 1985. It was the group's last album on the Motown label before switching to Polydor. Nightshift is the Commodores' second album without Lionel Richie, who left the band in 1982, and their last album with their original bass guitarist Ronald LaPread. Their previous album Commodores 13 (1983) had featured interim lead vocalist Harold Hudson of Mean Machine.
It’s only faint, but somewhere nearby is the sound of bass, pulsing slowly, almost in time to the waves. Welcome back to ‘After Dark: Nightshift’. Once again Bill Brewster comes armed with a sensitivity and sense of occasion that few other DJs possess. Delivering another batch of slow cooked musical stews, making sure the tempo stays nice and steady and the emphasis is on funk, soul, grits and corn fried chicken, Brewster has done so much digging, Late Night Tales had to hire a forklift truck and tractor.
Nightshift is Brewster's second outing in LateNightTales' After Dark series-actually, it's the second of the series, period. Like the first, it's an ode to the kind of loose-limbed abandon that only comes towards the end of a long night out. For Brewster, that means languid, often dubby grooves, the kind of music you can dance to when you just can't dance any more.
Nightshift continues in a similar vein but sounds even more streamlined. Outside of two late '70s cuts, Nightshift sounds all of a piece, pulling from the same late-‘00s era of nu-disco. The eighteen tracks that comprise Nightshift offer the slightest variations of a restricted sonic palette: disco’s boisterous basslines, hand percussion that echoes from deepest space, clean upstrokes of guitar, crisp hi-hats, swinging horns, swelling organs and electronic washes that arise and recede, any of the above elements prone to being dubbed out in the mix.
