One of the albums that the Bar-Kays cut for Stax in the early ’70s after they revamped the group following the disastrous late-’60s plane crash that killed all but two of the originals. The new lineup featured guitarist Lloyd Smith, drummer Michael Beard, vocalist John Colbert, trumpeter Charles Allen, saxophonist Havery Henderson, and others. This was classic Southern funk, with gospel-tinged vocals, energetic horn tracks, and lyrics that ranged from downhome musings to urban admonitions.
