First time on CD for one of the rarest albums ever from funky maestro David Axelrod the producer known for his work with The Electric Prunes on Reprise, and a string of late 60s classics on Capitol Records! This mid 70s set for Polydor has Axelrod working in a jazz funk mode much more electric than before, with heavy keyboards from Crusader Joe Sample, thundering drums from Ndugu Chancler, reeds from Jerome Richardson and Ernie Watts, vibes from Gary Coleman, and a nice undercurrent of strings as well. There s a subtle dose of fusion in the mix, but one that s never too jamming and Axelrod always maintains his trademark sense of space and timing turning the simplest musical measure into the kind of groove that holds up well into the 21st Century. The album s a favorite of sample hounds and crate diggers, and is incredibly hard to find on vinyl.
Seriously good but...

"As a previous reviewer wrote, who must have mentioned the Dusty Groove CD release, it source came from a vinyl record. Subsequently his review was also placed below the import release. I did not buy the Dusty Groove one. I bought the one on Cherry Red Records sub label EL Records from the UK (the one that does not show the red Polydor logo on the front) that does comes from the master tapes and sounds truly fantastic!"
