This 1971 release by Jimmy McGriff certainly doesn't stack up to the excellent Electric Funk which you can download here, however there is still some sweet grooves to be had. Jimmy's organ playing is exceptional as always but the other musicians can't keep up with the funk and the production doesn't help things either. To be fair though, I enjoyed this record enough to post it here so it does have redeeming features. The music comes off sounding like a more laid back version of Booker T & The M.G's so if you like their stuff then this should appeal to you.
