Quite simply James finest album, a double vinyl recorded just after the death of his son in 1973, every track is worthy of its place. The hypnotic funk anthem title track with its driving bass line and funky guitar riffs has been sampled many times as is regarded as a classic. The punchy shuffling 10 min epic ‘Stone To The Bone’, the social consciousness of the 12 min ‘Mind Power’ another funk anthem. The horn backed super funky semi instrumentals ‘Shoot Your Shot’ and ‘Time Is Running Out Fast’ are essentially JB’s tracks. The ballads ‘Doin The Best I Can’ and ‘Forever Suffering’ are also very good. This is James at the top of his game both vocally and lyrically and the JB’s at their tightest and freshest. Probably the best funk album ever made, An all time classic.
