        The first time I heard this it impressed the pi$$ out of me. $2 thrift find! Funky af with some weird atmospheric love making sounds? Forget about it! The bass and drums are extraordinarily. Mix that with some special keys and flute holy sh*t grab my ball$. I’m surprised this is not a cult classic because this record makes no sense at all....but who cares! Put this on and entertain some late night friends or a new lover. Feast my friends. Life is good!

            Disagree with Globe.. I love most of Bob James stuff..”Women of Ireland” might not be the best ever tune but i dig the way it builds up than fades out.. a fusion of gaelic, reggae & jazz

              This is a better album than a lot of the junk Bob James was doing back then. "One Mint Julep" and "Storm King" are decent disco-inflected fusion tracks. The latter is an example of James succeeding when he doesn't try to do too much. You get better music from him when less is more.

              The remaining three tracks are unfortunately schlock, especially the really-bad "Women of Ireland."
