Released by Funky Town Grooves in 2011 through EMI, this release combines the third and fourth albums by Brass Construction, which were originally issued, respectively, in 1977 and 1978. They were not among the band’s best releases, but they did generate four charting singles, namely the Top 20 R&B hit “L-O-V-E-U,” as well as “Celebrate,” “Help Yourself,” and “Get Up.” There’s a handful of solid album cuts, the best of which is the earlier album’s “Top of the World,” a jam that contains a wild guitar solo and an incredible breakdown. Casual fans should seek out either The Best of Brass Construction: Movin’ & Changin’ or Classic Masters.
