4 stars I discovered this wee jem of an album in my local Extravision for only 3, and thankfully i had a couple of other 'proghead' friends of mine with me who knew who he was and recomended this album to me, and i have to admit i feel bad for just paying 3 for it, this is a great wee album, a classic mix of Jazz and Funk and believe me this dude can mix both genres to maximum effect. It starts off with the very funky CHAMELEON, a slow builder that kinda evolves into something even a band like Floyd would be proud of, although my favourite song has to be the awsome VEIN MELTER, just a great wee track i can sit and groove to at home. The production on this album is so solid it could stand up to anything that was made today with ease, sure its not 100% perfect but hey its Jazz-Funk;

Chameleon -10/10 Watermelon Man - 8/10 Sly - 8/10 Vein Melter - 10/10

MY CONCLUSION? this is a fantastic wee release by the mystro of Jazz-Funk if your a fan, pick this up, its brill..
