    Leon Thomas It’s My Life I’m Fighting For / Shape Your Mind To Die

      • 1. It’s My Life I’m Fighting For
      • 2. Shape Your Mind To Die

      These two Leon Thomas cuts have become increasingly sought after by DJs in recent years.

      For his 1973 Flying Dutchman LP “Full Circle” Thomas teamed up with top New York session players like Pee Wee Ellis, Joe Farrell and Neal Creque. The latter composed the apocalyptic funky jazz of ‘It’s My Life I’m Fighting For’. Running for ten minutes it’s a classic.

      Thomas and Creque also wrote the dramatic five minute long ‘Shape Your Mind To Die’ which, fuelled by Pee Wee Ellis’ amazing soprano saxophone, appeared on Thomas’ previous album “Blues And The Soulful Truth” in 1972.
