Essential, classic album! This is HEAVYWEIGHT deep jazz with soul vocals and a huge horn section. The title track is a speaker blowing fusion of righteous gospel soul with vigorous, forceful, spiritual jazz, while Blues For Brother George Jackson is a classic slinky deep groover. This is one of the deep jazz albums most explicitly embued with the spirit of the civil rights era and it's a highly sought after rarity among collectors and jazz fans. This is Archie Shepp's best album and comes with our highest recommendations! 180 gram vinyl. Buy! Buy! Buy!
