Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover art.

From the inside cover: "Electric Funk" is the latest in the constantly evolving story of Jimmy McGriff. It's a complete experience of thought and ability. Although the title connotes a purely upbeat rendering, "Funk" offers a mixture of tempo and feeling and in two cuts "Spear For Moon Dog (Parts I & II) McGriff shows a great deal of musical compassion (Moon Dog is a blind man who can be found almost any day in New York City's mid-town area dressed as a Viking and carrying a spear. He never begs money, he just listens to the world around him).
