One of the best albums cut during the Prestige jazz/funk generation of the early 70s! The album's a super-heavy monster that has organist Charles Kynard working with a great group that includes Rusty Bryant on tenor, Virgil Jones on trumpet, Melvin Sparks on guitar, Jimmy Lewis on Fender Bass, and Idris Muhammad on drums – all cooking together with the sort of hard-grooving, high-wailing sound you'd expect from Bryant's or Sparks' Prestige albums of the time! The use of Lewis' bass on the bottom really leaves Kynard free to soar over the top – and in addition to his usual Hammond, he also plays some groovy electric piano on two of the album's tracks.
