The New Orleans funk band were at their peak on this 1974 album considered to be their best, which features the stripped down sound of the quartet but with horns on top arranged by Wardell Quereque. ‘People Say’ and ‘Africa’ are great bass led funk tracks with a compulsive groove. ‘Just Kissed My Baby’ is even funkier and became a rare groove classic. ‘Hey Pocky-a-Way’ continues in a similar way and the 12 min opus ‘Ain’t No Use’ goes through many changes but is full on throughout. The semi instrumental ‘Loving You Is On My Mind’ has a more soulful feel . Classic Funk album.
highlights Donny’s soulful voice. An amazing debut album. .
