Joyce "Baby Jean" Kennedy dominants the disc with her vocals alone. One woman powerhouse (while the band do they thang)! She doesn't give counterpart Glenn Murdock half the chance here and these are the hits. This is Mother's Finest featuring Joyce "Baby Jean" Kennedy. Get it right.
Discouragements: Just 2, "Dis Go Dis Way, Dis Go Dat Way". Is it a joke or an attempt to disco a little? You decide. If it's a joke, it's a very bad one. If it's an attempt, the music is fine but a 3-year old could have made up the lyrics. The cover of Jefferson Airplane (Starship, Jet, Asteroid, Meteor, whatever) "Somebody To Love" (Live) wasn't needed to complete this awesome disc.
So if you like old school funk, Southern hard rock and some powerful soulful vocals all wrapped into one package, then welcome to Mother's Finest's finest.
Some of the music on this set sounds very dated but still fun to listen to. It will hearken back the days when music was made by actual musicians playing actual musical instruments. If you're having a 70s disco party,there's some tracks your guests will like to dance to on this CD,if you want to show that Red Hot Chili Peppers fan where it all came from,then they'll like what they hear on this collection of tunes.
