One of Sylvester's big tunes has been criminally underappreciated for way too long. "I've Been Down" features Izora Rhodes and Martha Wash (later to become The Weather Girls) complaining about their men though the verse then fawning over them though the chorus. The record flits between street-talk and gospel highs while maintaining a solid '70s funk groove. "Tipsong" is a mid-tempo disco floater co-written and named after Sylvester's lead guitar player Tipp Wirrick, which should have been a huge rare groove spin.
