Genius work from the Detroit underground of the 70s – one of the greatest records ever on the now-famous Tribe Records label, and a masterpiece of soul, jazz, and righteous spirit! The session's headed by tenor player Wendel
l Harrison – and it's got an all-star Motor City lineup that includes Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Phil Ranelin on trombone, Jeamel Lee on vocals, Charles Eubanks on electric piano, and Charles Moore on flugelhorn. The tracks have a spacious spiritual approach that recalls some of the later Archie Shepp on Impulse – a blend of soul jazz with slight touches of electric instrumentation, some vocals, and a very progressive spirit overall – stepping proud in the new freedoms of the 70s, yet still swinging and very groovy. Titles include "Angela's Dilemma", "What We Need", "How Do We End All Of This Madness", "Merciful", and "Beneficent". Plus, this stunning 2CD edition features the full sessions and rare mixes from the album – 12 more tracks that include "What We Need (first version)", "Angela's Dilemma (inst first version)", "How Do We End All Of This Madness (inst first version)", "Merciful (alt mix)", "Beneificent (alt mix)", "Wife (alt mix)", "How Do We End All Of This Madness (vocal alt)", and "Angela's Dilemma (voc alt mix)".
