This album, originally titled LONELINESS AND TEMPTATION when it was released in 1975, necessarily has touches of funk and disco that may at first be disconcerting to fans of Carter's earlier work--until they realize that, for example, the period clavinet work on "Take a Taste of Your Love" is more than balanced by classic soul horns and guitar.
The album's centerpiece is "Just One More Day," a slowly simmering ballad that builds to a truly impressive James Brown-like climax; you almost expect to hear Carter fall on his knees by the song's end. Other highpoints include "I Got Caught Making Love," one of his all time best cheating songs, and "Let's Start Doing (What We Came Here to Do)," an ode to the pleasures of the flesh which occasions some of his most salacious laughter to date.
