Re-Joint, the re-issue sub of San Francisco's Dis-Joint label, unearths this spare, funky little 1971 gem from this obscure Miami five-piece otherwise known as the Miami Soul Review. The title track is almost garage band-like in its structure, with congas, yeah-yeah vocals and a twangy two-note guitar slide leading the way. On the flip's sly, Meters-ish "Grey Boy," saxophonist/bandleader Mike Edell strings a night-clubby melody line through the proceedings, rounding out a satisfying document.
