If you like funk and you are tired of the same James Brown and P-Funk tracks, check out this album. It will be like nothing you've ever heard, certainly new and inventive. Be not mistaken though; there are some hard hitting, greasy funk tracks mixed in with a sound people would orientate with African rhythms. A very good album and worth the scratch. Also, somebody bashed teh Shuggie Otis comp- not sure how a person could like Love's a Real Thing and not like Shuggie Otis. Personally, I recommend the Shuggie Otis as well. But start of with this cd.
