A fantastic record – one of Birdsong
's rare early ones, with a messed-up approach to funk that he rarely matched again! The album was cut at the time Birdsong
was working with Roy Ayers – but it was produced by Birdsong
himself, and he also handled all the keyboards on the set. The group's a stripped-down combo, without the slicker sound of some of his later work – and there's a fuzzy funk approach to most of the best tracks, with lots of guitar and bass. Titles include "If I Ever", "Any Color", "Rising Sign (Funky)", "Flow Through My Heart", "Turn Around Hate (Communicate)", "I Love You Michelle", "Tune From Callicoon", and "Last Exit Before The Toll".
