Party Time" was one of the songs that previously appeared on 45 and it's definitely the funk bomb on the album. The liner notes to the LP have this to say about it: "I remember spinning Party Time for a company of three, one afternoon, and I cannot forgot the warm reaction from the calypsoul arrangement that assailed the ears. Two of the group got up and gyrated on their own version of Soul Train."
"...if you - record buff, partygoer, musictheist, or whatever - can fathom the sounds of Reggay Express which is Number One throughout the English-speaking Caribbean at the time of writing...then you're experiencing just the dawn of the Cinnamon Suns, because they promise to be back with another sunny LP to blow your mind/tap your feet/do your thing."
