A nearly decade-long study of the Story Of Vernon Garrett – nicely covering the breadth of styles he could pull off, while drawing heavily from the best of it – from chugging raw soul, to grittier funk to some mellower numbers! There's a rawness at the core of Vernon's sound that serves him very well, whether it's the funkier numbers – of which this retrospective hones in on for the most part – to songs with a horn-heavy southern style despite the west coast recordings, to some solid bluesy soul rave ups. A strong testament to this greatly underappreciated talent! Includes "Cave Man", "Just Ain't My Day", "Escape", "You Blew My Mind", "We The People Of The Ghetto", "I Learned My Lesson", "Don't Do What I Do", "Keep On Forgiving You", "Satisfying Woman, Satisfying Man", "Something Went Wrong" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Totally great – and a record you probably know nothing about! The album's one of the greatest ever to come out of the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – a tight batch of funk tracks with a heck of a lot of guitar. The set was produced by Tommy Stewart, of "Bump and Hustle" fame ... LP, Vinyl record album

What can we say? This is one of the greatest soul soundtracks ever! In a market that was dominated by the big-selling Shaft and Superfly albums, Roy slipped in this masterful blend of jazzy vibes and wah wah funk that's easily one of the best-composed records of the blacksploitation genre!
