      Phenomenal album. Pure genius...funky and groovy. This pressing is also spectacular....definitely one to spin for a newbie who doesn't fully appreciate the glory of Herbie on vinyl.

        Is there a greater keyboardist alive today than Mr. Hancock? I seriously doubt it.

          I cannot get over the sheer fkng glory of this pressing. An absolute gem in my collection. Maupin on Sly is a unit!

            As Jazz-Funk goes, nobody is as funky as Herbie. This is a brilliant record with solid tracks start to finish.
            The grooves are toe-tappingly funky. Sure, the instruments sound a little dated these days, but for '74 he was really pushing the envelope.

            This is an early pressing that sounds amazing. Recommended.

              funky as hell, a work of genius. i am always amazed when i listen to it. not only groovy as it can be, there is also so much to detect by repeated listenings. a must have for every fan of funk and jazz fusion.

                I had the great fortune to meet Mr. Hancock in person and tell him of my fondness for this record. Jazz-Funk musical perfection!

                  This really is it, my numero uno. The wonder just grows and grows. Still gives me shivers, still blows my mind. The groove, the breaks, changes, shifting funky jazz.

                      Every disc page has a relative album to this disc. I know this one is a god like album.
                      And I just get a 180gram RE for this. So cheap. What a gift for Lucky fast speed hands.
