You can still find this lp factory sealed that’ s a red flag. It got my attention due to producer Roger Troutman (zapp). He had success with his version of «I heard It through the grapevine» in 82. This time it’s another Old tune: «Tobacco road». P-funk style (without his trademark-vocoder) very long and annoying song, last forever It seems. (Wacky tobacky?)The rest is dull funk and more mellow stuff. Very disappointing.
