A real solid groover, and one that we passed up for many years, mistakenly, because the cover looks kind of boring! On the inside, though, the record’s filled with lots of nice tasty tracks, and it’s got a sinister bubbling under funky feel that’s just great. Includes the monster cut “Charlotte”, which has sort of a rolling, bassy intro that would make a great sample — plus the cuts “Up There, Down Here”, “Thing To Come By”, and “Down Home On The Moon”.
