Note:
“Super Duper Love (Are You Diggin’ on Me)” is a song by Willie “Sugar Billy” Garner, released in 1975 as a single from his 1975 album Super Duper Love. It was made famous when English soul singer Joss Stone covered the song’s part one for her debut album, The Soul Sessions (2003), from which it was released in 2004 as the second and final single under the title “Super Duper Love”. A live performance of James Brown’s 1966 hit song “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World”, retitled “It’s a Man’s Man’s World”, is included as a B-side to the CD single.

Review:
A classic indie cooker from Sugar Billy — a bit funky, a bit clubby — and a really great batch of grooves done in a pre-disco mode! The tracks are all pretty darn upbeat — somewhat warmer than the funk of Fatback or Kool & The Gang, but still with a nicely rough-edged feel overall — one that mixes snapping rhythms with Billy’s slightly raspy vocals — all in a groove that’s somewhat unique, and which is almost a hybrid of southern soul modes and some of the indie styles bubbling out of the New York scene in the early 70s. Arrangements are by Jimmy Roach, who definitely helps the group groove — and a young Marcus Belgrave is actually in the group on Trumpet! Titles include the classic “Super Duper Love (parts 1 & 2)”, plus “Treat Me Like You Don’t Know Me”, “Love Bug”, “Sugar Pie”, “Too Much Too Soon”, and “Believe In Me”.
