The Brothers are in FULL funk throttle here.On their Quincy
Jones produced debut album the bass/guitar duo shine brightly on
classic mid-70's hard funk like "Free And Single",the classic hit
"Get The Funk Outta My Face",the instrumental "Thunder Thumbs And
Lightnin' Licks","Dancin' And Prancin" and the smoldering cover
of "Come Together" and their own "Devil".Elsewhere Quincy fasions
Sly Stone pop on "I'll Be Good to You" and a jazzier funk styling
on "Land Of Ladies",but nothing here will dissapoint!

...a stupendous album by two masters.
Like I said in an earlier review, most classic R and Bee stations neglect the heck out of some of these guys better tunes-sure, to these stations credit they play "I'll Be Good to Ya" and the great "Strawberry Letter 23", but they oughtta play cuts like "Free and Single" and "Land of Ladies" and the nastay "Get the Funk.." from this great recording, also.
I mean, simply, IMHO, they should play them. In the meantime, I implore those ol skool and funk aficionados out there to replace their old worn out vinyl or cassettes or CDs of "Look Out for #1" with an upgrade and join us '70s Obsessives' in the ongoing party groove. You know you already love it, now get it.

When funk was just entering the music scene in the late 60's/early 70's it was as a new hybrid music created by a number of different people with an already establish sound based in other styles such as James Brown (soul and doo-wop),Earth Wind & Fire (jazz),War,Santana and Mandrill (psychedelic latin rock) and Sly & The Family Stone who were based in a mixture of soul and psychedelic rock. Much like jazz and hip-hop later funk started out a lot like gumbo-a lot of things being blended together by a single source. And Louis and George Johnson were there from the start,playing with Billy Preston in their teens and getting hooked up with Quincy Jones for his Mellow Madness album. Their style was so enjoyable and strong that they became one of Quincy's first satillite acts and their debut album dropped about a year later. By that time they debuted at a time when funk music had started to become an established sound in and of itself and the Johnson's first album was a big part of that change.

Considering how innovative Louis Johnson's bass sound would become in the future it's amazing to hear the strong Sly Ston aspect in the overall sound of this album,rhytmically and melodically although the closely knit guitar/bass licks and thumps are very much theirs though very much out of the Larry Graham tradition. I've been listening to "I'll Be Good To You" for years but it just hit me how much the pop melody and thumping rhythm owes to the sound of the Family Stone. In fact aside from the mild tempo'd jazzy instrumental "Tomorrow" this album is all funk.

One of the best debuts of all-time. One of the greatest Lp's of all-time. Another alumni of the illustrious Class of '76 ("Sparkle" Aretha Framklin, "Spirit" Earth, Wind & Fire...ect). From the top 10 hits "I'll be Good to You","Get the Funk Out Ma Face" to the instrumentals (which are almost unheard of in R&B today) "Thunder Thumbs & Lightnin' Licks","Tomorrow" and the album cuts "Land of the Ladies","The Devil" this is a Classic. With the exception of "Come Together" it's top flight from beginning to end. Quincy Joneses production is excellent .

George and Louis Johnson were all of 22 and 20 when they released this tight, masterful and joyous debut LP, and considering the quality and depth of these proceedings, their age and accomplishment is all the more impressive. 9 tracks, 35 minutes and more good music than 20 bloated, 75 minute discs released by most modern recording acts. "Tomorrow" (later remade by a young Tevin Campbell) is getting much love on my home stereo right now and the slithery, creeping funk of "Land Of Ladies" and "The Devil" continues to massage my ears at least once a day! A Classic from a terrific, underrated band that should not be forgotten.

A bonafide 70's Funk Classic! While I liked this album alot, they'd often play one side of this whole album at the house parties back in the day.......used to make me so mad sometimes because as a dancer, I LIVED for two minutes (and twenty seven seconds) of Get The Funk Outta Ma' Face! But then the 45 version came along at a full 6:00 with that nasty fonky break down. If that's the version you're looking for - it's NOT here! Regardless, if you want a proper introduction to the Brothas, or you just love the era and the genre, you'll want to get this! This one, Right On Time and BLAM!
