Mr, Grundy explained his method behind his musical madness. "I wanted to throw a few different JB type sounds in this one from some of the various parts of the "JB University of Soul & Funkology." I definitely agree with him on this one. I’m really impressed that Bobby Byrd, The JBs, and Prince are in this mix. What makes it more electrifying, in my opinion, are the fact that songs from Vicki Anderson, Marva Whitney and Lyn Collins are also represented here. This is definitely exceptional, and a perfect way to bring in the new year.

Take it light.

    It’s amazing what you learn about a person after they’ve left us. Didn’t know JB was the influence for soooo many artists. Going through job changes here, so it may be a while before I can get leisure time to surf/chat/DL while on the J-O-B hunt.
    Hope you all are blessed and prosper in ’07.
