Isaac Hayes collaborator Dale Warren's dark masterpiece!

In-depth liner notes by Rob Bowman, author of "Soulsville U.S.A.: The Story of Stax Records"

Commonly regarded as one of the first-ever concept records of the soul genre, this dark masterpiece combines the lush orchestral arrangements of Isaac Hayes collaborator Dale Warren with Blaxploitation-style funk grooves, resulting in a sound that would rocket it to cult-classic status among DJs and producers who have sampled it for tracks by Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Digable Planets, Dr. Dre, and many others. Housed in an old-style tip-on jacket with printed inner sleeve featuring new liner notes.
