It just arrived yesterday and I have only heard it a few times...but it is really great. Even though the sleeve says funk and soul with folk elements it is more like lazy soul with broad orchestral arrangements played by REAL musicians and instruments. Produced in Muscle Shoals by Barry Becket it has both strength and nerve despite the over all relaxed feeling. The vocals are passionate and the tunes are good. Real nice music. A lost classic.
2nd stax cd by Mel and Tim with extra tracks from the first cd Starting all over again on the reissue. They like James and Bobby Purify made great soul music but lost out to the brilliant Sam and Dave. I would recommend both their albums if you like Southern soul.
