4 stars First Larry's not-Blue Note album. Fantastic work!

Mixing electric organ passages with African rhythmic and (what is possibly even more important) with African psychedelic mysticism, this album sounds raw and almost religious. In sense of voodoo, not your regular church. Sun Ra spirit and under-the-skin funk both are ingredients of this mix as well. Just five compositions - but what the energy is radiating!

Minimalistic and complex cacophony of sounds build great compositions, full of craziness and their own inside beauty. James Blood Ulmer on guitars and (possibly) Pharoah Sanders on sax add their ritual energy to that mix. Very strange and beautiful in its craziness music. You will like it or will hate it - I am in a former group.

The album was obscure till the beginning of new Millennium , when he was re-released on CD (by Castle and Sanctuary).

Not less than 4+!
