A fantastically funky full length set from Gizelle Smith -- a hell of a great singer who's really been winning our ears with her funky 45s -- now stepping out with an even more badass sound in the space of this album! Gizelle's groove is right up there with the hippest female singers in the deep funk underground -- and the backings by The Mighty Mocambos are forged in years of funky 45 experience -- razor sharp, with an especially great edge on the drums -- which seem to drive all the other instruments in the combo! There's no hoke at all in the production, either -- no fake-retro styles, just a clean, clear, classic approach to funky soul that makes the set an instantly timeless gem -- one of those records you could have picked up 30 years back, and will definitely be playing again 30 years from now. Titles include "Snake Charmer", "Coffee High", "Everything Holds Blame", "Gonna Get You", "Out Of Fashion", "Love Alarm", "Hold Fast", "The Time Is Right For Love", "Magic Time Machine", and "Nothing For Nothing" -- plus an instrumental of "Free Vibes".
