Thie Washington, D.C.-based
group had two singles from this album featured on the Billboard R&B charts:
"We the People" and "Think." The former is an
aggressively-paced number with a social message for the times; it features an
instrumental vamp. It peaked at 40 after only six weeks on the charts. The
second single was "Think." Penned by James Brown, it features his
distinctive horn arrangement. It, too, has that upbeat rhythm. It peaked at 43
inside five weeks. The two ballads on this album are "When Will My Eyes
See" and "Your Love Is so Good," and both contrast each other.
The former is pop-oriented and the latter is soulful. The remaining tracks are
in the vein of the two released singles. All are seasoned with the thick,
gritty sound of the early '70s.

The record is believed to come in its original stock inner sleeve.
The record is apparently
pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the
first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings
is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a
majestic analog sound from a digital recording!
Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior,
