Well done, all the way through
on October 13, 2011
I'm reviewing this in response to the handful of negative reviewers to this album.
While I cannot change someone's feelings of being bored or flat, I can say that there's a lot to this band and recording to keep you interested if you have got any soul. The keyboards are great. Lots of clavinet, and organ, great sounding wurlitzer piano. Some slower grooves and gospel tinged tunes. Some jam out tunes where Dereks' slide guitar really rips it up in the outros. Susan's voice carries a lot of weight and energy. The horns are a voice in themselves, not a lot of soloing - but great inventive horn arranging on some of the tunes. Very clever and most of all..... fun. Haven't taken it out of rotation since I picked it up. Don't let the 1 star grouchers stop you from picking this up. If you like good music you'll like this album all the way through.
