 The first record by the group who would record for Westbound as the Counts, this is the predecessor of those slick funky boys. The vibe here is distinctly Meters-ish and -- dare it be said -- a bit lifeless, the same problem with their earlier efforts. The album is mostly redeemed, however, by the title track, a classic two-and-a-half minutes of nasty, stinging funk. If you can't get enough of razor-sharp dudes in matching suits, by all means get this record. If your need for that stuff is passing, grab yourself a single of the title track and smile.
