8/10 Andrew Customer review, 6th August 2014
Jazzman come up with another reissue of a stupidly rare record you've never heard of (well I hadn't anyway). A quick check on discogs reveals the original sold for £300 about a year ago. Bet they are kicking themselves now you can get it here for less than 20 quid.
Ok, so its was hard to get hold of, but is it actually any good. Well, if soulful boogie is your thing, then yes its a cracker. This LP has a selection of strong soulful disco and boogie that makes it a pity this Oklahoma based group failed to get more exposure at the time. The title track is the killer, it will set any dancefloor up for some serious shuffling, however there is more to find. Why Don't You Let Me Know has a tough groove offset by Barbara Burton's lovely vocal. Husband and partner in the band Charles Burton providing the power behind the soul.
All in all a great album, well worth investigating. The Messengers Inc release also on Jazzman should also be worth a look if you like this, this was the Burton's earlier 1972 incarnation that provides a more heavy funk sound than this later (76) effort that had moved with the times to a more disco sound.
