Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Soundtrack to their 1975 movie. It didn't make the charts, but it's nevertheless one of the best soul-funk-rock fusions of its era, spanning a blend of material that includes versions of "As Time Goes By," "Yakety Yak," "Money," and "Toot! Toot! Tootsie (Goodbye)." The originals are solid, especially Willis Draffen's "Go to Sleep" and the band's rollicking "Rock & Roll Choo Choo." Notes are sloppy, discographical detail nonexistent or this would rate half a notch higher. ~ Dave Marsh
