After surprising everyone with some reunion shows last summer, this album pops out into the world. Apparently, the basic tracks for this one were done awhile back but left up on the shelf. Flash forward to 2013 and Lenny Lashley enlists members of Street Dogs and Mung to help polish up the rough edges. Whatever they did, it works. It doesn’t sound disjointed with various lineups from song to song. “Jimmy Needs” and “Lil’ Junkie” are my favorites here, but grab this and it will quickly slip into heavy rotation.
