Septimus - We Want A Piece of the Pie
"The final product was an album featuring eight tracks of sumptuous, jazzy R&B and funk, showcasing the crisp musicianship Septimus had honed night after night playing for nightclub crowds in Oklahoma. It also felt slightly out of time, hearkening back to the deeply earth and spiritual feeling of early 70s soul more so than fitting in with the gleefully cosmetic and glossy tone of early 1980s boogie funk.
One of the album’s high points is a thee delirious cover of the S.O.S. Band’s inspirational jam “Take Love Where You Find It,” which was also extracted for the b-side of a single on Chosen Few featuring the title track on the a-side.
The album was by any standard a magnificent artistic accomplishment but situating it in the market was going to be another hurdle."
