I remember this album as one of my favorites in my dad's vast jazz collection. Listening to it now I can appreciate where the Crusaders were headed as they began to find their groove with this album. It would take the Street Life album almost a decade later to put it all together. Like Donald Byrd, Herbie Hancock, and others who started to come out the Miles Davis/Johnny Coltrane/Thelonius Monk era you can here all the beginnings of the fusion of rock/r&b/jazz which eventually led to the smooth jazz period of the '80s. A must have for the purist and die-hard of the Crusaders. From classic Jazz! or the remake of the Beatles classic "Golden Slumbers" you will hear way they have remain classic contemporary jazz to this day. Of course those signature Crusader sound like "Thank You", "Funny Shuffle", "Rainy Night In Georgia", "Way Back Home", "Jackson!" rounds out this fine album.
