This is a 1972 Original Blue Thumb Double LP mastered at Artisan. I absolutely love this album and this copy sounds INCREDIBLE -- incredibly rich with a strong bottom end. The music is phenomenal as well. I'm surprised at how few people seem to know this album because it's an absolute beast -- 4 sides of funk that just destroy from start to finish.
Allmusic gives it 5 stars: "Full of Laid-back funky grooves, elegant, mind-blowing guitar work, elegant string and horn arrangements, and fine Fender Rhodes work from Donny Hathaway... 1971's soul-jazz album to beat, and despite its under-recognition at the time--it is one of, if not the, decade's finest albums in the genre, period."
Vinyl: EX (super clean)
Cover: VG+ (light creasing, minor price tag residue)
Play notes: An amazing sounding record with quiet vinyl and wonderful music!
