A stone funky gem that's mighty nice all the way through! The tune's got a popping, percolated drum part that's almost in "Tighten Up" territory and other instrumentation leaps around beautifully, including cool thin organ lines, tightly blasting horns, and this backyard bassline that's subtle, but really helps shape the tune! There's some very echoey and almost-buried vocal calls, which spur the group on even more and the whole thing's almost got a late 60s Florida funk vibe, which may well be the reference in the title.
