He began as the drummer for Stevie Wonder and later went on to be the bandleader and arranger for various Motown tours. Where all that talent went though I don’t know because after listening to a few of his albums you realize that almost all of his work relies on only one riff with hardly any changes. With most tracks clocking in at 5, 6, 7, 8 even 9 minutes long, that leads to some very monotonous music. Bohannon came right in the middle of this deluge so you get a lot of very long and droning songs." (http://www.soulstrut.com/reviews/list.php?category=Disco) "Wicked uptempo funky instrumentals from the great Hamilton Bohannon! The record captures him at a perfect point -- when he was taking advantage of the changing dancefloor scene to open up his groove a bit, but before he got lost in some of the triple-time tempos that ruined later albums. Titles include "The Funky Reggae", "The Bohannon Walk", "Bohannon's Beat Part 1", and "Gentle Breeze". (This copy has a light warp but still plays fine. About an inch of the cover is stained and wavy along the opening.) " "Dedicated to metronomic simplicity, Bohannon tends to walk the line between hypnotic and robotic: the opener "Bohannon's Beat Part I" is a great example of the former, with a simple scratch guitar line that breeds tense excitement, but "Funky Reggae," a one-chord workout with no development or discernable melody - or reggae, for that matter - ends up on the wrong side of the line. Carolyn Crawford - who had also been with Motown in the mid-60s - adds wistful vocals to the bluesy, atypically slow "Can You Feel It." Again, Side Two is ballads, and this time around they're even slower and longer ("Gentle Breeze," with the simple theme stated by sparely used strings), though "The Day To Remember," based on a blues guitar riff, does feature very tasty organ from Lampkin. Several lineup changes: Ted Waterhouse replaces Saunders, Rick Rouse joins Emmanuel on guitar, and Lorenzo Brown adds percussion. (DBW)"
