This is a minimum 5 track killer tune Jazz Disco Funk Album. The vibes from this Album survive until today. A1 for example on Razor N Tape 2016 Al Kent Edits, A2 which was the first Single from this Album and later covered by Merry Clayton and also edited by DJ Reverend P already 2013 on G A M M, A3 the next one also already edited by Jamie Buchanan in 2011, A4 was the B Side of the original Give Me Some Emotions Single, lets go to the B Side: B1 Remixed by Cory Wade, record producer, songwriter and as far as i know also DJ. Known for producing some of the biggest hits in disco in the 1970s on TK Records, for KC and the Sunshine Band and T-Connection. B2 as Globe199 already announced, is a killer discofunk tune, still works today. On half on the end B3 is the first soul tune with D Rogers on the lead guest vocals. B4 piano outro... do you expect more?

The two Herbie Hancock tracks are decent, especially Go For It, which is great. Incidentally, this is NOT the same song as the really bad track of the same name on his Monster album.
