Randy Stewart and Willie Hall etc participate in the production which is considered as their only album. In the middle is a funky rock A 2 “Average Man” which is also hiding percussive break points, A 4 “Life Is Funky” headed by a funky guitar, a unique hi-hat and a solid drum sound give a wonderful and warm impression A5 “Peace Of Mind”, B1 “Little People” of a hot funk truck that develops from a high-speed drum at a stretch, and so on. Superb Jazz Rock….~


One of the best Funk Rock album ever. Including ‘Life is Funky’….~

The only album “Alpha” released from Truth, a black-and-white mixed eight-person band, Round Robin · Monopoly’s label belonging to Stax. 
As far as you look at the jacket, there are only two blacks out of the members, a high proportion of whites, but funk sounds with a stronger rock color than the Tower of Power and Average White Band. Especially, in a song in which a multi-layered horn section reminiscent of Tower of Power is bursting with Bari Bali, it is quite cool, with a feeling like a funky brass rock. 
Following “Alpha” like short fanfare, the funk rock number “Average Man” runs to Groovy. A brass lock-like funk where conga is engraved rhythm and a thick horn section roars. 'I’ d Rather Loan You Out 'is a soul number of Medium Slow, a song that feels good with jazzy and mellow feel. “Life Is Funky” is a funk tune where drums, bass, Latin percussion gets greedy. 
The rhythm pleasant soul / rocking middle “Peace Of Mind”, rugged rhythm rugged funk number “Little People”, refreshing soul in the West Coast wind “People Do Change”, “Dreamers” are books Mid funk that drips the most dose dark black grooves…..~

The sole album released in 1974 by Trace of the Stax lineage by a group of black and white composed of a total of eight people. Brass lock-like element is also high, but a good record full of black feeling. Mellow grooved “Peace Of Mind” or title song “Alpha” is very cool. It seems that details of this group, the member ’s career are unknown, but a lot of players have gathered. Cool in funk full of tension per “Little People”. It is also important to have a conga player….~
