The second album by The Chicago Gangsters – and a tasty bit of funk that's every bit as great as the first one! The group's got a tight ensemble feel – with plenty of keyboard/organ riffing underneath tight horns produced with a nice jazzy flourish. Highlights include the rough funk number "Music for the People" (parts 1 & 2), the jazzed-up instrumental "Michigan Avenue", which has a solid dancefloor jam, the mellow harmony cut "On the Way", and a great cover "Feel Like Makin' Love", done with a vamp that gives it a tight funky sound!
