 What do those have to do with this record?

 Well there are always exceptions to broad based assertions. My exception would be "Funkytown" by Lipps, Inc. which is nothing less than a work of genius.

 As a long time fan of the Goodies, I must take issue with DA1's last assertion!

 In name only by all accounts...

 I thought "456 was a sequel to "1-2-3"

 Variant label scans added. (Pink? label)

With all due respect to sixtiesmusicfanatic whose insightful comments are a real plus to this site, both sides of this record were a major disappointment to this Len Barry fan. Side-A sounds like the Bee Gees "World" written sideways, and comes off as a maudlin cry fest. As far as Side-B goes, seems to me that any song with "funky" in the title is an exercise in time-killing futility.

 Two excellent but contrasting numbers here. The " A " side is a very poignant ballad , enhanced by Len Barry's sensitive vocal performance. The flip side , however , is a frantic , disco-style number , set to an appropriately pulsating arrangement . Both sides are very different from Barry's usual type of material , such as " 1,2,3 " and " Like A Baby ". The record stiffed , and I think it might have fared better if the energetic " Funky Night " had been the top side.
