This album from the Programme Music library presents the Bastow brothers in a slightly different light to much of the work they did for Bruton. It's straight up jazz/funk with plenty of satisfying guitar, piano, organ and vibes on show. Despite the lack of a prominent bass sound the grooves are fairly chunky with the best tracks displaying a blaxploitation style vibe. There are highlights all over the place and any record with track titles like "Funky Monkey" and "Raunchy" is just fine with me!
