A lost jazz funk classic! Perfect Circle are an obscure little combo from Oakland -- and they've got a great jazzy groove with lots of sweet keyboards, heavy basslines, and choppy horn parts -- a sound that's equally as great as some of the better-known Bay Area funk acts of the time -- especially those at Fantasy Records! 60s Hammond hero George Semper is a member of the group -- but he's playing a fair bit more 70s-styled keyboards on the set -- giving it a warm electric vibe that's totally great! There's some real funky killers here that are filled with breaks, plus a few mellower soul tracks that have some really great vocals.
