I just picked up a Best Of, and am digging it immensely! James wasn't their original drummer, but I believe he played on "Let A Woman Be A Woman..." It's got his 'snap' and a very funky vibe in the verses. The intro from that track was also sampled for "How You Like Me Now" by The Heavy (the song on the Kia commercials.)

Love James! Dig the file.
