Amazing songs and tunes

this cd has been in my honda for weeks. kicks off with one of the funkiest rock jams ever created, "do it again". they keep it going through the whole album, each song a classic and the quality of the music is super high. funky, jazzy, sarcastic, scuzzy, it's all here. rock music done the right way. big thumbs up! and as always thanks to Alibris for having this classic in stock.
