A fine, underrated album.
True, it doesn't touch the Unholy Tetralogy of the late 60's, early 70's (But
let's face it, few things do). The title track is deservedly immortal,
"Ain't Too Proud to Beg" their best Motown cover. "Luxury"
a great early reggae experiment, and the Sly Stone-riff that is
"Fingerprint File" is not merely a great Sly impression. It manages
to foreshadow Michael Jackson, four years before "Off the Wall"
; Key tracks are If You Can't Rock Me,
Ain't Too Proud To Beg, It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It), Time Waits For
No One, and Fingerprint File.

The record comes in its original, custom, inner sleeve, which is UNIQUE
to this album (we can see it through the cutout saw mark)
The record is apparently
pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the
first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings
is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic
analog sound from a digital recording!
Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior,
