To sweeten the pot for the hardcore fans, Fourplay recorded three new tracks for the album - Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" with vocals by Take 6, "4 Play and Pleasure," and "Any Time of Day" - all fairly uneventful. The musicianship is impeccable, the production velvety, and despite the ing-and-commuting stamp of approval, one wishes that these fine players would just cut loose and really rip once in a while.
