Two previously unreleased cuts from 1977, HOWEEFEEL is an earlier version of cult Chicago soul act Davis Import. Emphatic, harmonic and full bodied, quite why "People Of The World" remained unreleased is mind-blowing, it's got every possible hallmark of the late 70s sound and its delivered with raw authenticity and full groove command. "Lookin' For A Love", meanwhile, is way ahead of its time. Hinting at 80s funk elements you'd associate with the likes of Prince, it's a smouldering synth and slap-bass heavy track designed especially for smooching. File in the same essential playlist as Faze-O's "Riding High".
