Rufus featuring Chaka Khan is the gold-selling fourth studio album by funk band Rufus (and their second album with singer Chaka Khan), released on the ABC Records label in 1975.

cue) Tracklist: Once You Get Started (4:30). Somebody's Watching You (3:12). Pack'd My Bags (5:06). I'm A Woman (I'm A Backbone) (3:17). Right Is Right (3:14).

The poignant and sophisticated "Please Pardon Me (You Remind Me)" leads into the Maiden and Khan duet cover of Bobby Womack's "Stop on By," which nearly matches the steaminess and wry nature of the original. Often forgotten due to the bigger hits on Rags to Rufus, this easily outstrips that album and became of one the band's most-loved efforts.

Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan by Rufus & Chaka Khan. Masterjam by Rufus & Chaka Khan. Live – Stompin’ At The Savoy by Rufus & Chaka Khan. Street Player by Rufus & Chaka Khan. Ask Rufus by Rufus & Chaka Khan. 6. I’m A Woman (I’m A Backbone).

That art is put to work throughout Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan. Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan perfectly captures their unconventional sound and features Tower of Power on horns and Clare Fischer's string arrangements. This album is one of their best and is recommended.
