A true is a masterpiece of genre-bending groove, Vibes of Truth covers all the bases: from silky-smooth R&B, to politically conscious jazz-funk grooves, Vibes of Truth has it all.  Long sought-after by collectors for the three club friendly tunes within its grooves, “Backed Up Against The Wall,” “Concrete Jungle,” and “I Need You Girl,” this lost classic from the Fantasy catalog represents the very best of the mid-70’s jazz-funk crossover sound and fits perfectly in a collection next to the likes of the Blackbyrds’ City Life or RAMP’s Come Into Knowledge.
