Often overlooked amidst the bigger early albums by Kool & The Gang – but a totally solid record of funky stuff that's right up there with their best work! The band is super-tight at this point, grooving along in a hard drum, heavy bass, wah wah guitar frenzy – and even the vocals are great by this point, with that good mix of funky soul and humor that made the band so much more entertaining than some of their contemporaries. Tracks include the spacey "Wild Is Love", the super-dope "Rated X" and "North East South West", the mellow jazz number "I Remember John W Coltrane", and the cuts "Good Times", "Country Times", and "Making Merry Music".

Curtom, 1977. Very Good+
One of the few albums ever cut by Billy Butler – the brother of Jerry Butler, and a key force on the Chicago soul scene during the late 60s and early 70s. This one's Billy's sole effort for Curtom, and it's a self-produced, self-arranged album that shows that he was still going strong during ... LP, Vinyl record album
Do You Have The Time
20th Century, 1972. Near Mint-
Once a raw harmony group, the Younghearts moved into a sweeter, smoother soul vein for their 20th Century recordings, and the result is an excellent batch of modern soul tracks with a nice groove to them.

Hell Up In Harlem
Motown, 1974. Very Good
Despite what you think of Edwin Starr otherwise, he did a great job on this soundtrack, which is every bit as funky as any of Willie Hutch's work for other Motown scores!
