Blue Note continues their strong tradition of well-packaged samplers from the old days – this time dipping into the 1970s years of the catalog, and copping a few extra tracks from the related Capitol/
EMI labels. A few cuts here have been issued on other sets over the years – but at this price, the set's still a great package of 11 soulful funky tracks, with titles that include "Friends & Strangers" by Ronnie Laws, "Can't Hide Love" by Carmen McRae, "Think Twice" by Donald Byrd, "Spinning Wheel" by Lonnie Smith, "Feel Like Makin Love" by Marlena Shaw, "Acuphuncture" by Eddie Henderson, "Uno Esta" by Bobbi Humphrey, "VO" by Chico Hamilton, "Music Is My Sanctuary
" by Gary Bartz, and "Down Here On The Ground" by Grant Green.
