New jams like the silky smooth Blue Skyy, or the techno-driven Who's Bumpin show off that trademark D-Flow diversity. Other new jams like the silky smooth Blue Skyy or Cali Boogie prove the group still has it going on all these years later. Need more? The fun cuts More Manure, Lettuce In The Club, or the hillarious Meeheadsoon make it clear your listening to a Digital Underground album.
The live cuts on this record are also very special. If you've never made a d.u. show (they've done well over 1,000 of them) these cuts make you feel like you're in the room. Not just any live recordings either, these west coast shows are full of Cali energy. The crowd is into it, the band is on fire, special Bay Area guests are in the building. The only regret you have after hearing it... is that you weren't at the show the night it was recorded! This is a classic d.u. album... true and deep d.u. fans will "get it" and be in love!
