Short but Sweet Funk!!

"First off this cd is SHORT!! Total time is 35 minutes. I rarely give 5 stars to short cds. Tracks 2 thru 5 are all pretty good and enjoyable but not worth the price of the cd. The key is tracks 1 & 6. The "HOLY GHOST" tracks! These are the definition of funk and are worth the price of the cd!!! Track 6 is a more uptempo and longer version. About 6 minutes. Track 1 is the deep funk version with the killer base part! It's about 4 minutes. The vocals by Larry Dodson are incredible and what true funk singing is all about! I wasn't sure about this purchase when I first ordered it but "Holy Ghost" hits so hard that I'm totally pleased!! This is
Can't Put This Fire Out

"Funky horn-driven soul from the masters. This is a short album, but it doesn't disappoint - from the subversive strutting on the title track to the low-down beaten-dog crying on "Mean Mistreater," the Bar-Kays show off their talents at arranging and performing complex orchestrations of party funk. Check out the originals."

"Beyond Old School. This is the essence of late 70's funk. The title track is the most mainstream cut; however, it serves only as an appertif for what follows. The two versions of Holy Ghost are sheer percussive joy held together with prtotypical starchild Stratocaster work. If it doesn't shake you, a full physical with bloodwork may be in order. Feelin' Alright is an awesome Memphis-Soul take on the standard. Monster seems like a high energy soundtrack to any Quinn Martin action production. Sure, it's a short disc, but it hits all the right chords and truly provides a glimpse of what kept us all so funky back in the day."
