This Maze release of “Color Blind” from 1977 was the B-side of a 7”that also appears on their self-titled debut Lp “Maze feat. Frankie Beverly”. The Scratchandsniff guys do simple cuts and paste edits with nothing added to stay true to the original material. The extended guitar lick is definitely true to a smooth steppin’ funky soul groove.
