    It's good to hear Larry put the groove into this hidden track "The Perfect Storm" (meaning the joining of Larry and Raphael in a song flowing with each other) on Raphael Saadiq's "Stone Rollin" CD, his fantastic bass playing with the old school feeling wahwah guitar riff's Raphael put in makes the song as addictive as "It's A Family Affair" and "If you want me to stay", then Larry kills it with his verse - icing on the cake, pure genius:

    Actually, as much as I adore Raphael Saadiq and obviously would never dare to question Larry Graham's sense of groove, that track made me feel a bit uneasy. Doesn't it feel rushed? Like Larry is right on top of the beat and the vocals are pushing as well? Mostly at the beginning.

    "If you want me to stay" wasn't LG. It was Rustee Allen, who got the job after LG quit.

    Ah true indeed, right after Larry and his wife had to escape fly via the window and he quit LOL. Thanks for the correction!
