    Revolutionary, spiritual jazz from the unlikely city of Houston, Texas, reissued for the first time! 'Free As You Wanna Be' predates the maverick jazz issued by the likes of Tribe and Strata East and is a harbinger of best of the 1970s jazz underground, a collective voice of resistance to the musical and cultural status quo!

    Presented in both the issued stereo and previously unissued mono mixes as a double LP.
