Hands Down is the tenth studio album by Bob James), released in 1982. This was a turning point in James career, with the tracks "It's Only Me" and "Spunky" being early exponents of electronic jazz. At the time electronica was transforming popular music in reaction to the big orchestrations of the late 1970s (prevalent on James' previous works). The minimalist tastes of the era were also reflected in "Roberta", which mostly featured James in a piano solo. All songs written by Bob James, unless where noted.

Hands Down ‎(Cass, Album). Tappan Zee Records, Columbia. Hands Down ‎(Cass, Album). Hands Down is one of the most "challenging" Bob James albums (if you can use that word in this genre).

I found this album at a local sale for 50 cents. I had no idea what to expect from the album, I just bought the LP because the cover was cool. I later found the 50 cents was well spent. From start to finish this album was a great listen. If you like a good example of early 1980s funk/jazz fusion music, this is the album. Spunky: This track was worth the price alone
