    Summary

    Here it is! This is the monster lost funk album from 1976 that features Willis Jackson, George Benson, and Ann Winley on a bunch of super-funky, tripped-out, straight-blunted and often sampled cuts full of breaks. Worth buying for the track "Smokin' Cheeba-Cheeba" alone (used by Eric B and Rakim, Genius, Medina Green, Smif-N-Wessun and of course Tone-Loc), the album also contains the great breakbeat version of "Ain't No Sunshine" with a tenor solo by Willis Jackson (used by A Tribe Called Quest, Beatnuts and Ghostface Killah), and the slow bluesy talking cut "Fed Up", a baaaad rap about a couple splitting up. Very dope.

    Another reason to hear this record is the mystery behind it. Little is actually known. The cover says Willis Jackson and George Benson are the Harlem Underground Band along with singer Ann Winley, wife of Paul Winley, label owner and former member of the post-Atlantic Clovers, but many accounts say that there were a few other 'well known' and uncredited people in on the recording and that George Benson never actually played on any of the tracks. So who knows what's really happened back in 1976, but either way, the album has great grooves, whoever the guitar player is!
