  • 12. Can't We Smile? (Alt version)

Seminal jazz and funk album from 1975 with SIX EXTRA PREVIOUSLY UNISSUED TRACKS! Arguably one of The Mizell Brothers finest productions and one of SOTU's favourites of all time!!!!. This easily sits aside classics like "Places & Spaces" by Donald Byrd and Lonnie Liston Smith's "Expansions".

Fully remastered! Features the rare groove/disco faves "Tell Me What To Do", "Los Conquistadores Chocolates" and "Shifting Gears"! Superb! Highly recommended!
