    A staple in the 1970s pop and R&B charts, Johnny "Guitar" Watson blended hot funk and jazz with old-school showmanship in a combination that was both disco- and radio-friendly. The risqu title track is prototypical Watson, with stinging guitar interjections between a streetwise hipster vocal over a down-and-dirty rhythm, and the rest of the album, particularly the Peter Frampton-style, vocoder-laden "Your Love Is My Love," is a similar period delight, upholstered with deluxe horns, electric piano, and organ with not a synthesizer or digital keyboard in sight.
