Salsoul, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
An excellent groover from the legendary Vince Montana!

Roy Ayers in a tight mid 80s funk mode – commanding a modern vibe really well, especially with his vibes so prominent in the sound!

Sly's leaping into the air on the cover of this one – and for good reason too, given the overall groove of the set!
