This is hard and heavy funk and soul. Literally big, beefy, brassy. Sadly, the lead singer, the 400lb. Baby Huey died a year before it was released. Actually, the band itself is worth the purchase. However, no doubt, Baby Huey fronted it. Rap fiends should definately check this album as it's been sampled to death over the years and "listen to me" was a party favorite back in the days of Bronx block parties in the 70's.

If you're a fan of blues or Hendrix and would like to start investigating soul/funk but find James Brown too dancefloor friendly or Marvin Gaye too polished then this would a good starter along with the first 3 Curtis Mayfield studio albums.
