A pair of funky soul sets from the early 80s by Junie – Bread Alone and 5 back-to-back in one set! Bread Alone is a nice batch of slicked up funk – not as crazy has his stoned-out albums on Westbound, but just as great overall! There's plenty of 80s bass pedal whomping in the mix, but production's nice and smooth, with some good doses of soul that keep the record from being a silly throwaway funk effort. Junie's actually written some pretty tight grooves for this one – and the tracks have more catchy lines and honest lyrics than we can remember from earlier albums. Tracks include "Nagual's Theme", "Funky Parts", "Seaman First Class", "Bread Alone", "Why", "Love Has Taken Me Over (Be My Baby)" and "Apple Song". Junie moves the groove a bit more into cosmic boogie and even a little bit of early rap styled funk on 5 – with synthy grooves, rubbery bass lines, and some surprisingly tender twists and turns, too! A stylistically varied, but pretty solid little set from Junie! With the tracks "Rappin About Rappin", "Jarr The Ground", "Last One To Know", and "5".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
