Floating Points reissued this album on his Melodies International imprint is of Open Soul, the 1976 debut album from Chicagoan soul/jazz-funk fusionist six-member outfit Tomorrow's People led by four Burton Brothers. The album is notoriously hard to find, with original copies occasionally changing hands online for eye-watering sums of money. It's a terrific album, as is this welcome reissue on the Japanese label P Vine with obi strip. Spanning a wide range of soul and jazz-funk styles - from the rubbery, sax-laden disco-funk bump of "Let's Get Down With The Beat" and doo-wop influenced "Hurry Up Tomorrow", via the blistering "Hurt Perversion" - it's an inspired collection that stands up to repeat listens. Epic flipside cut "Open Soul" - a 20-mimute trip into the space-soul territory - is especially good.
