Funk Music Unlimited, 1974. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
The title here reminds us of an early gem by Kool & The Gang – and the fast funk style of the tune does too – except it's a lot more soaring and jammy – with bold horns, a great organ solo, and a massive breakdown that has very cool congas supporting a heavy bass! 7-inch, Vinyl record
