This review is from: Joyous (Audio CD)
Miguel's right: if you like funk (well, and soul, jazz, r'n'b, groove music, latin, fusion... and so on, you get the picture!), this is an essential recording.
Pleasure deserved - and still deserve - to be more of a household name. This is a great recording, with loads to recommend it. But the standout track is 'Joyous', whose title aptly describes the vibe. Bruce 'the round mound of get down' Carter supplies the super-funky beats, and the band build a righteous edifice of soulful funky groove atop his rock-solid foundations. This one track alone justifies the price of poichase, and BGP are to be thanked and commended on their good taste in re-issuing this gem.
It's brilliant... nuff said!
