Sweet organ lines, heavy drums, and a great little groove throughout — a tight batch of groovers from the mighty Charles Kynard! The keyboardist is in fine 70s form here — stepping away from the sparer sound of his albums for Prestige with a fuller style for Mainstream Records — in a groove that’s almost part blacksploitation funk, thanks to some sharp backings from arranger Richard Fritz! The mighty Paul Humphrey is at the bottom of the set on nicely funky drums — and other players include Arthur Adams on guitar, Chuck Rainey on bass, and some great additional horns, which give the record a larger jazzy finish, but never get in the way of Kynard’s lean, mean organ lines. There’s a great version of “Rock Steady” on the album, one that has a great funky intro — plus the cuts “Shout”, “Lime Twig”, “Slop Jar”, “Name The Missing Word”, “Little Ghetto Boy”, and “Hot Sauce”.
