Album Review

Seal in Red is the eleventh and final studio album by funk band Rufus, their debut on the Warner Bros. Records label, released in 1983. Seal in Red, which was the band's third album to be recorded without Chaka Khan, peaked at #49 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart and included the single ''Take It to the Top'' (US R&B #47).

Despite featuring guest appearances from a host of other distinguished names in the R&B/Soul/Funk/Jazz genres like keyboardist George Duke, who also produced the album, singers Patti Austin and Ivan Neville, Chicago's trombonist James Pankow, and saxophonist Ernie Watts, Seal in Red was only a moderate commercial success. Following Seal in Red the band reunited with Chaka Khan for one final album together, the double live/studio set Stompin' at the Savoy - Live, before dissolving in late 1983. []
