      Cross section of the great recordings that Leon Thomas made for Bob Thiele's Flying Dutchman. It covers the relatively straight-ahead pieces from his first two albums, as well as the soul jazz fusions of later output for the label.

      His last two albums have become increasingly in-demand in recent years in particular the eclectic experimentalism of 'Shape Your Mind To Die' and 'It's My Life I'm Fighting For'. BGP have also included some live tracks and a previously unreleased version of 'Um Um Um'.
