Ranked #81 in the Soul Strut 200
One of two essential funk instrumental LPs from James Brown's backing band The J.B.'s (the other being Food For Thought). Brown produced and arranged the album and put his own stamp on it by grunting, directing, and chanting like only James Brown can do (heh!). The tile track was an R&B smash hit and catapulted the album into platinum status (Foreigner albums were platinum too. How come I don't see this!?) Not much more can be said other than it delivers end to end butt wiggling grooves that embodies an uptown party circa the early 70s. It also features some of Maceo Parker's best work, especially on the track "More Peas". Cop and file.
