Rags To Rufus by Rufus

Featuring Chaka Khan

Producer by Bob Monaco & Rufus (1974 ABC Records Inc.)

Some serious funk sporadically peppers this album. The standout tracks are "You Got The Love" which was sampled to great effect by Tone Loc back in the day and the Stevie Wonder penned "Tell Me Something Good". Classic!
