"Somewhere between P-Funk, Kool and The Gang, Trouble Funk and The Bar-Kays, and definitely up there with Fatback, Brass Construction did their thing. The grooves have a heavy bass bumpin' / rhythm guitar vibe to them. This band seemed to hit hard in the later '70s early '80s, but the sound is pure funk (Hey anybody remember Luther Rabb ? ). This is great bumpin' dance music. "What's on Your Mind" and other songs of there's have been heavily sampled by DJs - - The only thing that bugs me about this group is engineering... It sounds too... early '80s pop radio, even though the band itself is majorly hitting. I'll tell you this : They must have torn the roof off during their live gigs though and I strongly reccomend any of their CDs, if you're a funk-a-haulic."
