Expansion (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $11.99
A mighty sweet groove from Chuck Cissel – a singer who's got a way of soaring with the groove – which is an approach that works perfectly here! "Don't Tell Me You're Sorry" has this vibe that's maybe a bit more upbeat than the message of the lyrics – but that's a-OK ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hall, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $4.99
Excellent early instrumental work from Albert! "Thaw Out" is a mad rocking groover – fast skittish drums, high-pitched organ, and hard wailing guitar solos from Albert that make the track a killer funky instrumental! "Backstroke" is more bluesy – although still ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

That tiger's trotting at a mighty cool pace – a slow-funk groove that almost seems to have a touch of Ethio-exoticism in the horns – while the drums and guitar stay in more familiar funky territory overall!
