A brilliant debut from Clydie King – a singer who worked countless backing vocal sessions on the LA scene of the 70s, but who really shines here on her own! Clydie's got a rough and raw vocal style that you might guess from the hip-looking cover – a slightly rootsy mode that's clearly inspired by southern soul of the late 60s, but given a funkier LA touch here – a very tight groove that's laid down by backings from Billy Preston on organ, Sonny Fortune on saxes, David
T Walker on guitar, and Paul Humphrey on drums – plus heavy congas from William Allen
, who also handled arrangements and production for the set! Definitely a funky soul sister classic – with tracks that include "First Time, Last Time", "There's A Long Road Ahead", "B Minor", "Direct Me", "'Bout Love", "You Can't Go On Without Love", and "Ain't My Stuff Good Enough?".
(NOTE – A bit of a strange one here, the bottom 4 inches of the cover has been neatly cut off, our best guess is that it was due to staining.)
