'Gamblers life' is good, no question, but not as good as 'Gears'

I had to double check that there were no comments or reviews of this astounding work of genius! Anyone even remotely interested in Hammond or Mizell bros. must own this. Something magic happened here. "Star Borne" and "Back to the Projects" are two of the best jazz fusion jams in existence. My favorite Hammond record as a label to label experience. Yes, I prefer it to the over-heralded _Gears_, which once you take away the two hits, you have less of an overall experience than you do with this record.
