The copy I bought from Juno this week sounds great.

Production on the first track (a Hendrix cover) is not to my taste: it sounds somewhat too slick and commercial. Muhammad's drum work holds it together, and things improve when the stock brass arrangement gets out of the way and lets the soloists in.

The real standouts are the last 3 tracks, which serve up an irresistible '70s jazz-funk sound with minimal cheese. The musicians are tight, and players Grover Washington Jr and Randy Brecker went on to become stars in their own right.

"Loran's Dance" is a highlight, sampled by DJ Shadow, the Beastie Boys, and many more.

have to agree as well. a lot of surface noise especially in the b side. i also have a pressing from 1974 and it sounds much better.

I agree with Globe 199, same problem on this reissue... Lot of surface noise and crackling too on half of the begining of both sides. DO NOT BUY THIS REISSUE.

This is a TERRIBLE pressing. I've now had two copies and both had the same flaw. They have a crackling in the right channel in the first third of both sides at a certain very small warp on the record. There aren't any visual flaws I can see; it's some permanent problem in the grooves.

Who pressed this record? At any rate, DO NOT BUY THIS REISSUE.

Everything is right on this album. The way Idris plays the drums here set a standard for the Jazz-funk genre. Deep funky beats, velvety metals, super groovy Fender-Rhodes, it's all here. No wonder why it is very sampled and played by DJs. It's a must have.
