"Sweet and Funky Soul Fans... move over... Sylvia's back...Finally a compilation of Sylvia's sweet 'n spicy soul hard hitters.This is the type of stuff you expect to find on those pricey non-domestically available imports - - in fact, that's how I got back into Sylvia... hearing Private Performance, Next Time That I See You and If You Get The Notion on various Japanese '70s funk and soul compilations. On one, one of the tracks was actually lifted off an old beat up crackly 45, but it was soooooooooo good, them tingly li'l crackles didn't matter ! ! ! Now finally, Sylvia's freaky "Millie Jackson move over" funky love makin' tracks are back. - - What's so wild about her tracks is you REALLY feal like you're back in the '70s (remember those old K-Tel joints ?) - - some of the tracks have this low budget quality to them at the outset, but between Sylvia and the orchestrations they're bumping mad ! ! ! Check out the freaky fuzzy guitar solo on Next Time, or the funky bass solo in Sweet Stuff, and the way Sylvia comes back in with that sexy, "Now that ain't so bad after all !" (Word of advice guys incidentally... if you're listening to this stuff while riding the subway and prone to singing out loud, watch gittin into those ffffffff... ooomph Daddy, Aiii yaiii yaiii yaiii's out loud, or well... interesting folk might decide to accompany you !)..."

"For all interested parties, "Sweet Stuff" and then "The Next time that I see you" are worth the purchase alone! I was lucky enough to find this disk at a local record store and purchased it at the domestic price of $11.99. I would suggest that you at least try to go that way before plunking down major money for it. For me, I play this music, I close my eyes and it's 1974..1975..1976. Music of my life, and I very much appreciate Sylvia, she gave me a picture of what love could be (evil smile and a wink!). I'll always appreciate her music! 5+ stars!!"
