One of the best jazz-funk albums ever, only sick stuff. If its not the LP cover one of a kind (very beautiful, IMO) the selection of the songs and the music is just awesome. "Night Breeze" is one of my favorites... covered also by Ronnie Laws in his LP "Fever" (Ronnie Laws - Fever). Great stuff indeed!
