Not only is the music amazing, but the recording and mastering is fantastic. This record is certainly a desert island disc.

Referencing Japan reissue CDSOL - 5731
The first Bohannon LP from 1973 is diverse and consistently good. He said in an early interview that at this stage the potential dance floor success of his music had not yet occurred to him. Clubs picked up on the single The Stop and Go and this inspired the idea of creating more dance grooves for the follow up LP Keep on Dancing.

This is by far the Deepest music by Bohannon, as in spiritual. The only fast track Stop and Go opens side one. This is followed by Getting to the other side and The Pimp Walk, both excellent mid-paced funky blues. From track 4 onwards the LP moves into a suite of slow, laid back tracks. The overall feel is closer to electric blues or gospel, certainly not dance music. Some reviewers have drawn comparisons with the first Funkadelic LP.

On later the later LPs Insides Out and Bohannon side 2 was the weak spot, featuring limpid ballads verging into muzak. Stop and Go is the exception featuring some really spiritual and tranquil music. These slow grooves have a meditative, ambient quality. The most cosmic and ethereal track is It’s time for peace which has a strong hint of Alice Coltrane's transcendental free jazz.

One reason why this LP sounds so fresh may be the role of Bohannon's collaborators. Motown had recently re-located to LA leaving many of their top session payers available to work on this session. Guitarist Wah Wah Watson co writes on 2 tracks and Ray Parker Jr on 1 track. On bass Eddie Watkins plays with beautiful economy and subtle inflection. The contributions of Travis Biggs on electric violin also add to the unique sound of the LP. This is very much a transitional stage for Bohannon before he hit on his patented dance formula.

The sound quality of this remaster is crystal clear. The only downside (given the high price of this Japanese pressing) is that the sleeve notes are in Japanese and the original LP back cover is reproduced so small that the credits are difficult to read.
