In the wake of their hit, 'Funky Worm', the Ohio
Players quit Westbound Records and keyboard and
vocal wizard Junie quit the Ohio Players. He
immediately set out on a solo career that was less
commercial than his erstwhile colleagues, but
musically intriguing. He recorded three solo albums
for Westbound, with "Freeze" being the immediate
follow up to his debut "When We Do".
Recorded at the world-famous Ardent Studio in
Memphis, it saw Junie play every instrument, from a
traditional rhythm section to a barrage of the latest
synthesizer technology. The result was an avant-
funk masterpiece that ranged from the sublime 'Not
As Good As You Should' to the wild 'Granny's
Funky Rolls Royce' which reprised the worm
character and was later sampled by DJ Shadow.
