Timely reissue of this much in demand Florida gem, this welcome repress features new cover art and remastering that gives it more punch than the somewhat thin sounding original. The album was never actually released for sale back in 1981, being a promo only issue and apart from a lone 7” drawn for the set, this was the only offering from the highly talented quartet who boasted members of The Mighty Ryeders among others. The party funk of ‘Sha-Naa-Naa’ opens the album in upbeat fashion while the lilting falsetto ballad ‘All My Love For You’ contrasts with the pacier funky modern of ‘I Need Your Love’. The reedy, synth strings on ‘Waitin’ For A Sign’ give it that expansive ‘cosmic soul’ vibe typical of so many ballads of the period while the driving funk of ‘Sittin’ On it’ clocks in at over 8 mins. The jewel in the set is the seven-minute plus, full album version of the modern soul in demander ‘Strung Out On Your Love’ but following closely behind is the lesser known soul gem ‘I Need You Baby’. As if that pairing wasn’t strong enough they complete the finale with the killer, moody beat ballad ‘Answer’: and with that, they were gone. Essential!
