Great reissue of this rare and little-known Chicago funky soul and jazz album from 1973! Combining the spiritual soul and funk of Earth, Wind, & Fire with the proto-rap of the Last Poets and the cosmic jazz of Pharaoh Sanders, Boscoe's lone album has long eluded bootleggers and the collector elite. At last, and via Numero's * imprint, this Chicago spiritual soul jazz masterstroke will see the light of day.

This album is a must for anyone interested in soul's secret history Deep, civil rights-era deep funk and soul with some deep jazz poetry tracks, too! Recommended!
