Album Review

Hot on the heels of his "Boogaloo Down Broadway" single, this album was not a burningly original statement, and didn't contain anything else on the order of "Boogaloo Down Broadway," but was an enjoyable mix of soul covers and originals penned by producer Jesse James. The arrangements cook really well in a lean funk-soul groove; "Cool Broadway," admittedly a knockoff of the "Boogaloo Down Broadway" vibe, has a fractured rhythm anticipating the innovations of the Meters a couple of years later. "Got What You Need" was a small soul hit, and "Baby I Need You" was a capable deep soul-type ballad. The CD reissue adds two bonus tracks: "Hitch It to the Horse," a minor hit in 1968, and "Look What Love Can Make You Do," awhich is basically the same track as "Boogaloo Down Broadway" with different lyrics.
