A. Does this really need a review I ask myself. Countless heads and others alike know it but what about the newbs wondering what that funky flute tune is called? This is it.
Opens with some percussion by the way of a triangle that's quickly joined by a bass guitar combined with some shaker and whats possibly congo drums and other percussion anomalys, then BAM! Funky drums and a wandering synth make way for some soothing lyrics from Mr. L.L. Smith himself. If you're involved with this track when it's playing, you won't notice the flute kick in, it just fits. Of course, you'll also be aurally pleasured by some darting organ keys coupled with the obligatory guitar team up. IMHO, this has everything a Jazzfunk track should have and if possible, was a trend setter back in it's day. Absolutely incredible!

B. A Chance For Peace: A hip shaking conscious chugger that warms you with picked bass and feint synth lines. Throw in some organ, a funked up electric guitar and the essential drumline, well..... equally suitable anywhere in a set.
