  • Such a fantastic album!
  • underrated.

  • good times when elton used to play with this bad ass band (ray cooper, james newton howard et alli) and make songs about whores
  • Awesome music, but the album cover is ugly.
  • Grow some funk
  • Patty Labelle kills the vocals on this,damn she can sing! (yell help)
