This CD is special to me, I imported it from the U.S at great expense about 10 years ago only to have it stolen a few months later. It has taken me until this month to find a download for it on the net, so I thought I would share it with you. Everything about Playtime 3 screams quality, from the cover art to the production values to the hard hitting funky songs. Each track has something special about it that makes it worthy of such a great comp. There is even a novelty funk track called "Soul President Number One" which always makes me laugh. This is a must have.
