Mel Brown’s fifth album — as we’d assume by the title — and a pretty darn tasty batch of funky numbers! There’s still a bit of the bluesy playing that can sometimes ruin a Mel Brown record –but the best cuts are just super-dope guitar funk numbers, either chopping along at a tight funky pace, or kicking back and letting Mel open up in kind of an O’Donel Levy mode. Plenty of tasty nubmers — including “Good Stuff”, “Time For A Change”, “Cheap At Half The Price”, and “Luv Potion”.
