You know how sometimes a rare funk record on an obscure label gets sampled by a few DJs and slowly gains a mythical status as a Certified® Holy Grail?
And then sometimes, you listen to it to see what all the fuss is about and discover the music is not quite as good as you would have hoped, given the hype.
Well, let me tell you, curious crate-digger; THIS is the music you'd expect those $500 albums to contain. The band had a straightforward, no-nonsense approach to songwriting that not only highlighted their incredibly tight musicianship, but also a lightness that can only be produced by people who were truly having the time of their lives in the studio. And not only are these songs fun, they also contain message after message—carrying a certain urgency in their proclamation. They don't beat you over the head with politics, but it's enough to show that the music had more than a little substance behind it. And rather than an album of punchy, three-minute hooks to appeal to dancefloor DJs of the era, the group had no fear galloping into lengthy instrumental segments. The timestamps are proudly listed as if to say "Yes, we're here to JAM!" They were beyond proficient, and it shows.

This is a severely underrated band who produced three LPs in their time. Since they were somewhat commodified as "just one of the funk signees" on Atlantic, they sold marginally well, but have been sadly overlooked due to these relatively high pressing numbers of their LPs.

All's I'm gettin' at is: don't let the small price tag fool you into thinking this isn't deserving of your time. If you see this LP in the wild, happily pay up the man, and consider it a gift from the funk gods above.

how do you know if it is a reissue? especially if no year is attached to the release.
