The most remarkable thing about Slave
's music through its career was its commitment to simplicity. Sparse, yet dense arrangements in which everything wrapped itself around a potent bass melody and simple songwriting formula. No ostentatious production or over-the-top divas in acrobatic vocal hysterics. These were tight, jam-packed songs designed to make you move. Stellar Funk
captures the best moments of Slave
's career and some of the most hypnotic funk ever to come out of Ohio, or the '70s for that matter.
