In addition to having a great title, this 1971 release is one of the best of the group’s early efforts. Combining the raw groove of James Brown with the melodic talents and jazz influence of hornmen Ronald Bell, Robert Mickens and Dennis Thomas, the band gives a solid workout to songs such as “Pneumonia,” “Who’s Gonna Take the Weight” and the Sly Stone hit “I Want to Take You Higher.”
