Fantastic stuff through and through – and almost a "best of" best of collection from the 70s!

Great stuff!

A rare funky soul classic! This one was originally issued on Brunswick in 1974, and it's darn impossible to find in the original, probably because Brunswick was having a great deal of financial trouble at the time.
