From the desk of one of Memphis's most-respected musicians. Accomplished Trumpeter Ben Cauley, original member of The Bar-Kays. Ben became world famous after being the sole survivor of that tragic plane crash in 1967 that killed Otis Redding and four other Bar-Kays band members. Ben continued as a Bar-kay for another two years, before concentrating on writing, arranging and producing in the Memphis area. Working along side some of the fabled names of The Memphis Sound.

On this dance session he transports himself 300 miles east to Nashville to work with another studio legend "Robert Riley" who along with "Ted Jarrett" was the driving force for Soul Music in Nashville.

Ben's time spent rubbing shoulders with the likes of Isaac Hayes, Staple Singers etc. shines through on this intricate mid-tempo delight. Adorned with slick girl group choruses, subtle stabbing trumpet prompts pumping pricise hol;e through the excellent jazz fusion keyboard work; keeping the session sailing on through on track, producing a fabulous dance offering.

When it comes to 80's indie rare Soul productions, this seamless meeting of the minds has everything it takes, to pleasure the dancers.

To pleasure the DJ the condition is flawless.
