Both Worlds - Don'tcha Hide It (1974)

Tripped out fusiony funk – with lots of great solo work! These guys have kind of a jazz rock approach (hence the "both worlds" name) – one that makes for some tight bass and drum work, lots of choppy guitar, and spacey keyboards interlaced with some funkier horn solos.

The production is raw, which gives the record much more of an edge than you'd expect from a group like this; and even the sweeter vocal numbers come off with an strong indie feeling. Includes the massive horn-heavy jazz dance tune "Coming On Strong", plus the cuts "Solide", "Don'tcha Hide It", "Stop Turn Around", "Leavin Them Days", "It's Love", and a fantastic cover of "Freedom Jazz Dance".

Enjoy it!
