Pretty hot and cool (if you see what I mean) Hammond organ-led quartet withlots of funky guitar, keys and drums going on. Slick professional take onwhat's more sixties / seventies jazz funk than out and out MGs copyists andgood for them. The band's third album and nine strong original cuts hereplus a bit of Deep Purple's Jon Lord and Brother Jack McDuff all played withvigour and energy. Ideal good night-clubbing or high flying soundtrack.Memorable album.
