This was the 1970 debut album by Kool and the Gang, and it remains an important one in their deep catalogue. As you would expect from this early 70s version of the band, the music is a lively stew of jazz, soul, and funk influences. Horns and guitars galore in these mostly instrumental workouts. None of their relatively lame "Ladies Night" 80s type pop tunes, but good and greasy soul-jazz jams. All of the songs were written in collaboration with album producer Gene Redd, the one exception being a dynamite cover of the Smokey Robinson song "Since I Lost My Baby. Just about every song on here has been sampled, and this is a showcase of jazz and funk. If you grew up thinking all Kool and the Gang music was like "Joanna", you have no idea what you're missing. You have to check this album out.
