First Time On Vinyl Since Its 1972 Release! 180 Gram Vinyl! Features The Hit "Our Generation!"

Long out-of-print funk rarity available on vinyl for the first time since 1972 - an absolute must-have for fans of funk, soul and groove.

On vinyl for the first time since its release, this 1972 funk rarity has been long sought-after by DJs. Tracks off Hines' debut have been sampled prominently for decades - including "Our Generation," which was featured in Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth's 1992 single "Straighten It Out," off hit album, Mecca and the Soul Brother. Most recently, "Our Generation" was in the spotlight when John Legend and the Roots covered it on their 2010 collaboration Wake Up! A must-have for funk and soul collectors!

"'Sugar Plum' is a rocksteady stomper bridging soul with a tinge of funk, aided by production from Tom Nixon. When you throw in a subdued but still edgy guitar solo that is sprinkled in a few spots, you have the makings of a track that you're thankful wasn't lost to the annals of time. Hines was also quite capable of penning ballads. On 'Your Love (Is All I Need),' Hines croons with complete confidence and competence while being backed by a breezy guitar and a swinging set of sticks. Lyrically, it's fairly banal, with lyrics such as 'Your love means more than life to me, baby/Without your love, I'd be only half a man.' It's his delivery that wins over the song." - Eric Luecking, allmusic.con
