FUNKY SUPERFLY (PART I)
"Bobby Williams was often dismissed as a 'James Brown clone', even by his own label. There's little denying it though: from the opening strains of title track 'Funky Superfly (pts. I & II)' there's little doubting just how strong the influence of the great man was on Williams, but hey, props to the band, who are on tremendous form throughout. Actually, props to Bobby too, who at least knew his lot in life, and it's not like he does himself a disservice on this 45: the performances couldn't be any more fully committed and boisterously delivered, and much credit is due for that."
