    There’s a lot to like here. So many genres fused into this record, sounds great, very warm, and you can get it on the cheap!

      I believe I was eight years old when this came out :) This is the sound that very much captured the feeling of the 70's in the city. ...of Sunset on the radio and jazz in the park at night. A very different time, which I miss deeply to this day :)

        A jazz-funk masterpiece. This pressing is impeccable, my copy is NM. Both the music and the vinyl, they don't make them like this anymore!

          I'm surprised this is not a more sought/expensive record. The music is A+ jazz funk. I've never heard another pressing, but this sounds great. Dynamic, clear, and rich.

            I haven't listed to any other pressings, so I can't say if this particular version is better than others, but this album has some of the highest sound quality of any LPs I own. And of course, fantastic music and playing to boot. A huge winner.

              Have a matrix/runout side A: AL-33194-1H (stamped) 1T (etched) COLUMBIA NY (stamped) / side B: P BL 33194-1G (stamped) 1T (etched). Is this another entry? Or which version variant would be? Thanks.

                This is one of those albums that I initially bought because of the cover artwork, as one of my peccadillos is looking at ladies who have been daubed from head to toe in body paint. One day I hope to paint a bare lady myself, and that will be a very great day for me!! Perhaps I will even listen to this album as I do it.

                  This album is a classic slice of jazz-funk that can be procured on the cheap. Every single track is a winner. For me, "Jungle Strut" and "Tambura" take it to another level.

                    If you want to know what the key players in EW&F did in their spare time listen to this album - I cant believe its not butter!

                      Boogaloo funk at its finest. Everything - drums, bass, keys, horns - on point.
