The 180g 2008 reissue is just a digital sound source likely be from the CD, (com) pressed on vinyl thats why the label called it remastered!!!!!. The 1st early 00's reissue sounds much better.

99c album till the mid eighties. Massively overrated. If it wasn't for the likes of Daddy O (Stetsasonic) and 'Jazzy' Jeff Townes introducing Jazz breaks and samples to Hip Hop, albums like this would probably have remained obscure, even with the Ayers/Birdsong connection. 'Daylight' is nice though.

For me, I can't get enough of this album. Different songs have grown on me over time, and I'm always changing which one is my favorite. I find the dual female vocals mesmerizing and totally unique. This is a one off album which does not really sound like anything else I can think of. It's hard to go wrong when Roy Ayers and Edwin Birdsong have an imprint on a project.

I like Roy Ayers, but this album didn't really live up to it's hype in my opinion. There are far funkier albums from this period that I would rather listen to.

One of those massively popular LP's for soul & raregroove lovers, produced by Roy Ayers, with at least four huge tracks including their great version of 'Sunshine'. 'Daylight' was also sampled by TCQ on 'Bonita Applebum'.
