Don't Play Us Cheap Melvin Van Peebles Stax STS 2-3006, 1972
Don't Play Us Cheap album cover

A two record set from the profilic Melvin Van Peebles of Sweet Sweetback fame. Taken from a musical comedy, as you'd expect there are plenty of vocal or ensemble numbers. They're backed by a really groovy jazz band comprising strong horn section, backline, guitar and piano. And these cats can play! Once let loose on the instrumentals you get to ehar them let rip properly. Check out the excellent funky soul jazz of 'The Washingtons Thing' to hear the best cut off the album - buy for that track and you won't regret it.

Overall Rating: 3
