A key transitional record from Fatback
– one that sits nicely between their earlier funk and later club years! The record clearly knows this aspect about itself – as side one is titled "Vintage – House Party", and features more longer-jamming takes on the grooves that group was beginning during their Event years – a tightening up of the rougher initial Fatback
groove, with plenty of bass driving the bottom of the tracks and lots more guitar work over the top. Side two shifts the focus to the "Tasty – Disco Party" mode – a style that's not that different from the first, but which has some smoother touches overall. Great Fatback
all around, and titles include "Funk Backin", "Master Booty", "The Man With The Band
", "Mile High", "I Gotta Thing For You", "Midnight Freak", and "Zodiac Man".
