Back in print on vinyl for the first time in over 20 years, this lost classic from the Fantasy catalog represents the very best of the mid-70's jazz-funk crossover sound. The 3 Pieces' one and only album for the label, 1975's Vibes of Truth remains highly sought-after thanks to its three club friendly tunes "Backed Up Against The Wall," "Concrete Jungle" and "I Need You Girl." The album was brought to Fantasy by Donald Byrd then enjoying great success with his productions for the Blackbyrds. Lincoln Ross, the multi-instrumentalist leader of the 3 Pieces was also a former student of Byrd's. Although the 3 Pieces failed to repeat the success of the Blackbyrds, they created a dazzling collection here nonetheless. Cut from the original master tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio, pressed on 180g vinyl at Quality Record Pressing and housed in a one-pocket old-school style tip-on gatefold jacket.
