Incredible funk from an almost-unlikely source -- the legendary P&P family of record labels, mostly known for their groundbreaking disco work -- but also home to some excellent funky tracks in the late 70s! Given that most of the focus on P&P reissues has often been on the label's club tracks, nearly all the tunes on this LP are reissued here for the first time -- offering a completely fresh look at the sound of P&P -- making the collection a totally essential set, and long overdue! Many of the tracks are instrumental, and have touches that clearly mark them as coming from the hands of Peter Brown or Patrick Adams -- nice spacey bits in the keyboards, wickedly snapping rhythms at the bottom, and an overall sense of groove that's always yearning for something new.
