Track 1 - I Need You Girl
Track 2 - Backed Up Against The Wall
Track 3 - Vibes Of Truth
Track 4 - Shortin' Bread
Track 5 - Self Dealin'
Track 6 - Concrete Jungle
Track 7 - If Only I Could Prove To You
Track 8 - Cool It
Track 9 - Virtue

This is a nice set of jazz and soul grooves from the obscure 1970's act The Three Pieces. Donald Byrd handled the production on this one which adds a bit of weight to the proceedings. Some of the tracks are a little too smooth for my liking but "Shortin' Bread", "Self Dealin", "Concrete Jungle" and "Backed Up Against The Wall" have loads of charm. Vocalist and bass player Jerry "Wildman" Wilder went on to be a part of Chuck Brown & The Soul Searchers who released a number of records throughout the late 70's and 80's.
