Rocking Funk
Abey Grey | 01/06/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"From the first listen to this album with all the guitars and screaming,you really dont know whether you should expect some happy happy dance to the music sly stone before there's a riot goin on style funk, or some heavy jimi hendrix style rocking, or some straight out funk like funkadelic or black merda.......mix all these styles together and this is what you are going to get!It is a really great album with some mishaps here and there which is why i give it 4 stars instead of 5.But I dont really want to sound like a critic and I am not one either so straight and simple....if you just want to listen to good music without being picky picky then go right ahead and buy it because you will enjoy it.It is not a masterpiece , and it is not a work of artsy fartsy! This is funky soul rocking plain and simple!"
Excellent
William R. Nicholas | Mahwah, NJ USA | 10/08/2009

"I guess there were too many competing soul bands in 1970, because this one should have been a lot bigger.

Purple Image only had one album, but wow is it good. Self-titled, it includes funk heavy as Hendrix with music almost straight rock and ballads as sweet as any by the Stylistics or Delphohics. But this band even goes one better: listen to the spanish guitar on "We Gotta Pull Together." This is expermentation rare in the era's funk.

In a word, excellent. In two more, buy it."
