“Larry Graham, man. As soon as this record came out, people started talking about it, and with good reason: It’s spectacular in every way, with so many incredible bass performances that all you can do is just sit there and feel jealous that you can’t play that well.
“Of course, I was already a huge Larry fan from the work he did with Sly And The Family Stone, but when he formed his own band, I got him as the full artist. We’ve Been Waiting is such a great opener, and then it goes into It Ain’t No Fun To Me, and it keeps right on delivering. A dynamite record.
“Larry is pure joy. He loves what he’s doing, he’s feeling it, and he just can’t wait to get it out to you. He’s the kind of guy who could be playing to one person or 10,000, and it’s all the same. That kind of spirit comes through on this album.”
