Legendary but hugely unsung Tulsa funkateers J.O.B had a serious live reputation attracting homage from the likes of Chaka Khan, Bootsy and Gap Band. You can feel the energy and fluidity between the trio from these four songs alone; the jittering, tightly sprung groove of "Keep On Smiling", the Hathaway-style measured spoken slow jam "Just A Song", the floor-stamping organ struts of "Love Everything About You" and soft focus Faze O-style cosmic soul of "Valentine Love". Few recordings of Billy Bruner's troupe exist and even fewer live recordings, making this all the more special.
