One of the fine fine albums of spacey keyboard funk that Charles cut for the Mercury label during the late 70s. Earland starts with a Herbie Hancock approach – and no surprise, he's got Paul Jackson and Harvey Mason in the group – but then he changes the groove to show off more of his funky soul jazz roots, and comes up with a sound that has a bit of a Mizell touch, with a nice soulful groove, still underpinned by some great jazzy conceptions. Titles include a cover of a Stevie Wonder's "I Wish", plus "Betty Boop", "Singing A Song For You", "Shining Bright", and "Revelation". (Cover has some light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
