Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1987 album from the Jazz/Funk pioneer. "I'm the One (For Your Love Tonight)" was his final set for Columbia Records. Unlike it's predecessors for the label, Roy produced the album himself working with his then-bassist David Metcen who co-produced and contributed five songs to the nine-track set. Other Ayers' band members playing on the album included William Allen and Dennis Davis with long-time friend James Bedford contributing his songwriting talents on three songs. Standout tracks include a cover of the Isley Brothers' 'I Once Had Your Love,' the soulful slow jam, 'Let Me Love You' (featuring singer Chandra Currelley, formerly of the S. O. S. Band), the funky 'Crack Attack' and the vibes-dominated instrumental, 'Blue Summer. ' This expanded edition includes an extended dance mix of the title track. Notes by renowned U. S. writer Lewis Dene (former contributor to the UK's Blues & Soul magazine) include quotes from a 2011 interview with Roy.
