Tenderlonious lays down his flute for this LP and goes back to the MPC, with help from the illusive Dennis Ayler. Comprised of ten cuts '8R1CK C17Y' takes the listener on a journey through House, Funk, Jazz, Rare Groove, Boogie and Broken Beat - something for everyone here!

    Limited as always - you know the drill!!!
