Don Was come back! All is forgiven! For years, we'd thought poorly of you because of later projects, but going back to this classic early album for Ze Records, we now realize what a genius you were! Like other sets on Ze at the time, this one's a brilliant blend of funk, punk, rock, and soul – done with a post-P Funk approach to the grooves that puts plenty of bass on the bottoms, and which also flows lots of other interesting instrumentation into the grooves to keep things fresh. The production is stellar – soulful, bouncing, and joyously aware of every element of the full album's potential – and the whole album's a lively ensemble affair that features work by artists as diverse as Wayne Kramer
, Marcus Belgrave, and Sweet Pea Atkinson! CD is greatly expanded from the original, and titles include "Oh Mr Friction", "Wheel Me Out (long version)", "Out Come The Freaks", "Hello Operator (short)", "It's An Attack", "Carry Me Back To Old Morocco", "Christmas Time In Motor City", "Tell Me That I'm Dreaming", and some nice bonus mixes!
