They may not be naming their albums too creatively, but that's A-OK with us, given the strength of the grooves on this set! Brass Construction and the amazing Randy Muller do it again – somehow managing to fuse a very large group into an incredibly tight sound – one that rivals that of smaller combos of the time, and which keeps things sharp and funky even over the course of some longer extended tracks. Muller's talents for scoring the horns are a big part of the success of the set – but the wicked guitar, bass, and keyboard bits totally help too! Titles include "One To One", "Help Yourself", "Perceptions", "Night Chaser", "Sweet As Sugar", "Get Up", and "Starting Tomorrow". (Shrinkwrap has a hole in front.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

United Artists, Late 60s. Very Good
A goofy mix of groovy instrumental tracks with a weird "Apache"-esque instrumentation made up of some nicely processed guitars.

Polydor, 1976. Near Mint-
One of Roy Ayers' greatest albums of the 70s – a set that tightens up the groove from previous Polydor productions, yet still keeps all the soul intact!

Ethnic Stew
ABC, 1974. Very Good
A great bit of funk from this obscure 70s combo – the first of their many good albums, and with a sound that's rougher and rawer than the others. The band's grooving in a pretty slow mode here – without the uptempo club tracks of later years – and they've got a style that's a mix ... LP, Vinyl record album
