Album originally released in 1980 in the US on the Black Fire Music label as ”Make A Change”.

The 3rd album by Oneness Of Juju (not counting the lost Bush Brothers & Space Rangers set) — and a great little set that has them changing things up for the dancefloor! The standout number is their classic “Every Way But Loose” — a tune that was so big it was later licensed for the New York scene, and a great number that still has some Afro jazzy touches. Plunky’s at the head of the group here, and the album’s actually got some really great soul numbers that kind of bubble and sparkle in an Earth Wind & Fire-inspired mode! Other tracks include “Make A Change”, “Loves Wonderland”, “Run Away Bay”, and “Higher”.
From Dusty Groove America.
