A bit funky, a bit bluesy – and one of the only 70s albums we've ever seen from guitarist John White – a player with a feel that's a bit more laidback and loose than some of his contemporaries on the Mainstream label! The style here is somewhere between work by David T Walker and Freddie Robinson – some of the rougher edges of the latter, but more of the focus of the former – set up nicely in some west coast backings that feature work from Merl Saunders on organ, Hadley Caliman on tenor, Sonny Red on alto, and Phil Wilson on drums. There's an edge to some of the best tracks here that you wouldn't expect – especially in comparison to other Mainstream Records sessions – and titles include "Granite and Concrete", "Help Us Out", "Right Off", "City", "Tried To Touch", and "Number 3."
