A fine and very rare Perception LP from some-time Impressions arranger Johnny Pate, also responsible for the classic 'Shaft In Africa'. While this album is not as strong as the Shaft LP, it features a beautiful funky theme sung by Adam Wade and a number of strong funk instrumentals. This album obviously influenced a great many Acid Jazz artists.
