And now for some power funk from New Jersey that will make your mind shake and your soul burn. Wicked vocals and frantic lead guitars embellish the classic soul funk anthems performed here. 1619 Bad Ass Band goes for dynamics instead of powering on through this whole record, originally released in 1976. The opening song, Love to Love, is an earth-shaking and spirit-melting eruption, but the next tune, I Am Mine, presents the more thoughtful side of this bunch of funksters and should set you ablaze with melodies of divine beauty. All of this comes with an irresistible groove no matter where you direct your ears to, as the interplay of the musicians is tight all around - but this should be standard for an outstanding gem of this caliber. People pay $700 for a mint copy, and it's probably worth it. The further you get here the more diversity and color this album shows while still retaining the familiar funk style that got so popular in the '70s. These cats knew to compose accessible songs with captivating arrangements of nearly unknown depth and width. Sweet synthesizer lines join in with the steaming beats and chorus lines sung with extreme passion. When the band turns down the pace for a sweet pop soul tune, they still know how to deliver sheer brilliance.
