Nightcruising is an album by the Memphis, Tennessee-based R&B group The Bar-Kays, released on Mercury Records in November 1981. The album reached number six on the Billboard R&B albums chart. The band embraced a more up to date sound with keyboards and synthesizers with this album, and it was much better received by fans than their previous release. Nightcruising is considered one of the Bar-Kays' best albums, and was their third to be certified Gold for sales of over 500,000 copies.
