Wonderfully tight grooves from Touch – a group who step out here with their debut album, but who had been playing for years on a variety of other studio work! The core combo is wonderful – lots of choppy guitar over the tight bass and drums – and vocals that often have more than one group member singing together at once, but in a style that’s not entirely harmony soul – more of an expanded approach to the lead!

The album was recorded partly at Sigma Sound and partly in New York – and both Tony Valor and Tom Moulton help out with production, at a level that helps the group rival some of the best music from the early years of Salsoul Records.
The whole thing’s great – and titles include “Love Hangover“, “Energizer“, “Me and You“, and “Come On Baby (Let Me Take You Higher)“.
