You could put most of these tracks on a compilation of 1970's deep funk and I doubt anyone would notice because they are so true to the spirit of what made the music of that period brilliant. It's also a good sign for the crate diggers of the future to know this kind of stuff is floating around just waiting to be sampled and mashed. The production qualities maintain the 70's vibe with prominent drums, guitars and horns complimenting the organ and flute solos. There is a bit of an Afro influence to a couple of the tracks aswell as some very nice vocal numbers. In fact the only miss comes in the form of the final track "Brasil No.7" but even that has some pretty sweet drumming on it. Go get it!
