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.

There are a lot of sick sellers here, some asking for 600 $ for a M-/VG. Don't they have brains??Next to that the same grading for 45 $ and there is 42 for sale in all so hardly rare. Guess it's about time to start looking elsewhere for second hand LP's because in the end one never knows what one get's when dealing with mentally ill people.

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.

I bought this album on a whim somewhere at the end of the 70's (in 1973 I was definitely still too young), but I'm sure it was before I knew "Feets don't fail me now" (which I also bought later and the 12" (disco version) of "Tell everybody", it's also on "Feets don't fail me now" but in a completely different version, e.g. without the fantastic percussion).
I actually don't remeber why I bought it, probably because I had heard some records of Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea and liked them very much. But all in all it was not a bad choice and moreover I still have the album (in playable condition of course)......
I never understood those people who got rid of their vinyl collection when CD's became "the norm" in buying music. And now lots of people are buying turntables and paying sometimes a lot of money for records they threw/gave away years ago. Anyway, vinyl rules IMHO and so does this album!
