The New Mastersounds - Plug & Play CD
The sixth album from the UK Funk maestros. What you get on Plug & Play is: their trademark infectious energetic grooves, warm vintage production by guitarist Eddie Roberts, and successful forays into sub-genres like Psychedelic Afro-funk, CTI-era Jazz-Funk, Soul Jazz and classic Soul. Though the NMS wear their musical roots on their sleeve, this ain't no retro copycat band: each track sounds unmistakably like The New Mastersounds. And in Dionne Charles they have found a vocalist who can do justice to the phenomenal soulfulness of the music.
