Hammond organ star Jimmy McGriffs outstanding 1971 album, Soul Sugar, is issued here on CD for the first time in a special remastered, digipak edition which also includes as a bonus the complete Jimmy McGriff LP Groove Grease.

"Soul Sugar" brings Jimmy McGriff into the jazz-rock scene with a new band so driving that it marks the beginning of a new musical expressionism for Jimmy. And that¹s something for a guy who¹s done it all, played it all, and invented a lot of it. This album is so right it will leave you begging for more long after you¹ve worn it out. But if you¹re lucky, Jimmy and his new band will be playing a club in your area, for they¹re on tour fifty-two weeks a year. Stop in and listen to some live Soul Sugar."
