Law & Order is the best of Love Committee's two albums. The quartet featured Ron Tyson, who sang with the Ethics and the Temptations. Love Committee first made noise with a 12" dance track "Can't Win for Losing" on Ariola-America. Ron Baker, Norman Harris and Earl Young handled the productions. "Cheaters Never Win" has them switching leads like the Temptations, the lyrics are street, and the rhythm swings. The title track "Law and Order" is a slab of social commentary that's reminiscent of Blue Magic's "Welcome to the Club." Another winner, "Just as Long," is a dance track about two-timing your lover and regretting doing so, but doing it anyway. "Put It in the Back of Your Mind," and "Pass the Buck" also merit repeated plays. Tyson co-wrote all nine selections. In 1995, Salsoul Records re-released this on CD.
