The album is a classic indie cooker from Sugar Billy – a bit funky, a bit clubby – and a really great batch of grooves done in a pre-disco mode! The tracks are all pretty darn upbeat, somewhat warmer than the funk of Fatback or Kool & The Gang, but still with a nicely rough-edged feel overall, one that mixes snapping rhythms with Billy’s slightly raspy vocals, all in a groove that’s somewhat unique, and which is almost a hybrid of southern soul modes and some of the indie styles bubbling out of the New York scene in the early 70s. Arrangements are by Jimmy Roach, who definitely helps the group groove and a young Marcus Belgrave is actually in the group on Trumpet!
