Notes

Misprinted track A4 as "Vanity" instead of "Variety." The error is consistent across the sleeve and the center label.

A brilliant LP with better funk than Dr. John and genuine hooks to go with the jazzy grooves laid down in "Long Hair" and "234 Northwest Twelfth". Excellent little pop songs here and there, too, and a wealth of tracks that play gleefully with their own structures. I have gotten a lot of pleasure from "Diggin' What You're Doin' ", and I hope you may too.
