    If you know Sade, then you know that Sweetback is responsible for her music being her backup band.
    Comprising of the three artists, their debut album was by far a knockout CD for me.
    Featuring vocals from some well known singers, Amel Larrieux from Groove Theory fame, Maxwell and Bahamadia.
    I think the Roots were also included somewhere in the CD (Bahamadia's song - Au Natural).
    I found all the songs with vocals tended to be very good, in particular You Will Rise feat. Amel Larrieux. I have found a number of remixes for this song and they all sound superb.
    Au Natural shows the range of Sweetback showing that they can produce good beats for a rap song.
    In terms of their instrumental songs, they all seem to belong in movies which may bring a case of some muzak that you'll hear in elevators (reminiscent (sp) of Sade perhaps?), but the tracks with vocals definitely make the CD
