"Get Started", complete with great rhythmic guitar and spacey synths and a gorgeous flute solo makes this an essential purchase by itself. Dancefloor veterans will no doubt remember the dancefloor single, "Push, Push" that updated somewhat the 'Dazz / Dusic' theme. The easier "All The Way" contains great Rhodes keyboards, and should have had greter radio potential in it's day. the lazy groove of "Don't Ever Lose Your Love" follows a more southern groove a la the Bar Kays, and the guitar really makes this song have some punch. The guitar is also prominent in the sax-drenched summery ballad "Let Me make You happy", a groove that would be easily comfy on a Con Funk Shun set from the same era. Being Funkytown Grooves, we don't just get the original LP, but we get this set in an expanded format and following the great midtempo "Spread love" we have full length versions of the classics "Dazz" and "Dusic". What more do we want? How about their other sets? Well, they be a comin' soon...until then another essential release from the guys at FTG!
