Early work by the James Taylor Quartet – one of the group's first hard-hitting Hammond-driven albums, and a killer batch of retro funky tunes with a 60s R&B instrumental feel! James is really wailing on the Hammond on this one – blowing out some hip solos that romp with a mod late 60s London groove, stomping his way through hip covers of tunes that include "Blow Up", "Mission Impossible", "Alfie", "Mrs Robinson", and "Goldfinger" – and laying down some great originals like "Be My Girl", "The Stooge", and "Untitled No 1". A really great album – and the kind of record that shows the raw roots of James' early career, the ones he's returning to in his recent excellent funk recordings! (Out of print.
