Review :
A lost funky organ groover — and a rare one too! Bobby Forrester may not look like a funky cat, but this set grooves like some of the best early 70s work by Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, and Groove Holmes — hitting hard with some really funky tracks that have made the album a must-have with collectors for years. The sound here is really great and nicely stripped down — Bobby grooving on Hammond with drums by Johnny Kirkwood and guitar by Elijah Williams Jr — all coming together in a totally solid sound that has plenty of funky riffs, nice drums, and soaring organ lines! Includes the classic groover “Uncle Funky”, a great cover of “Sanford & Son Theme”, and the cuts “Blues For Razz”, “Don’t Misunderstand”, and “Funky Fly”.
