Wild eyed organ soul from Mandala – a mix of raw and heavy R&B and fuzzed out garagey sounds from the Toronto combo – bringing their legendary approach to fiery performance to this lone rare studio set pretty well! It's not a soul set by a purist's definition, with raw funk, psychedelia
and even rave up gospel revival feverishness in their sound – with very excitable lead vocals, thick layers of organ, some vibes and raw percussion. Typical of Atlantic Records of the era, a couple cuts have grander arrangements courtesy Arif Mardin, but this is quite an atypical album overall! Titles include "World
Of Love", "One Short Year", "Every Single Day", "Mellow Carmello", "Palumbo", "Stop Cryin' On My Shoulder" and more.
