Editorial Reviews

Fatback's second album of 1975 is a serious improvement over Yum Yum: the arrangements are tighter, the hooks are stronger, and the grooves keep the listener riveted from start to finish. It downplays the live feel of previous albums like Keep on Steppin' in favor of a more carefully arranged feel that highlights the tasty keyboard and synthesizer work of Gerry Thomas. Raising Hell also produced two major hits for the group: "(Are You Ready) Do the Bus Stop" capitalizes on the dance craze of the title with a steady bass-driven groove that works in layers of keyboards, guitars, and horns to keep things interesting, and "Spanish Hustle" is a propulsive dance jam that alternates synthesizer flights of fancy with intense Latin percussion breaks guaranteed to make the listeners shake their hips. The album tracks that back up these singles don't make their presence felt as strongly, but none ever descend to the level of filler: "Groovy Kind of Day" alternates smooth harmony vocals with jazzy electric-piano riffs to create a smooth mid-tempo track and the group's cover of the Four Tops' classic "I Can't Help Myself" is cleverly re-arranged to fit Fatback's dancefloor format . The result is a fine collection of funky dance music that helped Fatback solidify their reputation as one of New York's foremost disco groups. It remains just as listenable and is worth a spin for disco and funk fans alike. ~ Donald A. Guarisco, All Music Guide

Format: Audio CD
This is the re-release of the ORIGINAL ALBUM from 1975 (originally on Event/Polydor Records). Spanish Hustle clocks in at 5:16, However, there was a promo only 12" release clocking in at 6:24. This version should of been on the cd as a bonus.. "Do the Bus Stop (are You ready)" was the other hit.

This album is a jazz album with roots of rithm & blues. The music of Fatback Band is wonderful kind of jazz I've never heard.
In two songs (All Day and Spanish Hustle)there's a very good trumpet solo. This trumpet solo seems performed by Herb Alpert.
