This album caused a sensation as a recording on the tape. The quality feature of this production is a rich and balanced sound. As a master tape copy, the best of the best. 

The band recorded the tracks live in the studio and, in the case of "Ain't No Sunshine", the first take was chosen for the album, which is an indication of the professionalism of the musicians.

The Last Official Set Box by Kolibri Records 

The songs on this album (nine out of twelve are composed by Tommy Schneider) move between rock, jazz, funk and soul. The band combines these styles very intelligently and combines them into a coherent whole. They operate six instruments: saxophone, drums, percussion, guitar, flute, and Hammond B3 (including Leslie cabinet). The bass is handled by the Hammond organ. I am very impressed by the variability of the four musicians. Guitarist Adrian Stern, for example, switches effortlessly between rhythm to solo instruments.

The saxophone is played by Philippe Chrétien from very soulful to powerful. The Hammond organ (Tommy Schneider) is used sometimes sweetly, sometimes authoritatively and then again grippingly. For all instruments, an extremely solid and powerful recording has succeeded, which is especially noticeable with the drums (Hans Peter Bartsch) played to the point.

Both the Swiss Jazz musicians Tommy Schneider and Brian Auger continue the tradition of the great Jimmy Smith on the Hammond Organ. Tommy released together with superb soloists three albums with groovy and warm sounds from blues, soul and swing, funk and Latino with rock elements from their guitar player.
