(United Kingdom - Import)
Digitally re-mastered edition of this 1977 album from the Jazz Funk act. Hailing from Portland, this eight piece outfit should have been the next in line for multi-platinum success after Earth, Wind & Fire and Kool & the Gang. It seems unfair that they didn't make a bigger impact on the charts, because over six albums recorded for Fantasy Records they mixed Jazz and Funk to perfection. Their legacy really is something special. Their very finest LP is Joyous, whose title track has been an instant and ongoing club classic since it was first issued, but also features marvelous instrumental grooves, stoned freak outs and an amazing slice of dance Soul in 'Let Me Be the One'. BGP. 2010.
