Cleveland Eaton, Ed Greene, and Morris Jennings accompany Ramsey Lewis on this commercial-flavored 1973 release. While jazz/pop/soul versions of "Where Is the Love" and "If Loving You Is Wrong" come off limp, spacy renditions of "Nights in White Satin"; Eaton, Jennings, and Lewis' two compositions, "Serene Funk" and "Dreams"; and a beautiful interpretation of Thom Bell and Linda Creed's "Betcha by Golly Wow" make this an enjoyable and essential reissue. Originally issued on Columbia Records (1973). ~ Andrew Hamilton
