The two original Prestige albums coupled on this compact disc were recorded a day apart in different cities. Both feature Sonny Stitt and Don Patterson. Blistering bebop saxophone virtuoso Stitt led the Soul Electricity! session at Rudy Van Gelder's fabled Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey studio and plugging his alto and tenor into a Varitone attachment for the occasion. Patterson, perhaps the hardest bopping organist ever to attack a B-3 console, fronted the following day's Funk You! date in the Big Apple, which found an unplugged Stitt and fellow saxophonist Charles McPherson locking horns. To borrow a phrase from the Magnificent Montague, these two albums "burn, baby, burn."

with Charles McPherson, Pat Martino, Billy James, Billy Butler
