Overview

Charles Wright & the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band were near the peak of their popularity on this, their third Warner Brothers LP featuring three chart singles. Artistically, they are right there. The rough unevenness of LP number one is gone, and it flows smoother than their second album -- which spawned "Do Your Thing." "Till You Get Enough," a heavy dose of funk, charted at number 68 pop and 12 R&B in 1969; the slow, sensuous "Love Land" faired much better overall at number ten pop and number 20 R&B in 1969. A final single, "Must Be Your Thing" (1970), charted at number 67 pop and 12 R&B. The band also affix their disjointed rhythmic approach to remakes of Edwin Starr's "Twenty Five Miles," the Doors' "Light My Fire," and Wilson Pickett's "I'm a Midnight Mover." In the Jungle, Babe is easily the most satisfying album of the bands' career.
