The entry is confused here - these are technically two different albums with the same cover and a few tracks in common. The 1977 album is of little merit whereas the 1971 album, released in the UK only, has great rare and previously unreleased (at the time) tracks which show what a great Soul singer Richard was when he wanted to be. As great as the material is though, to call it "One of the most powerful albums of the Rock era" is just ridiculous hyperbole and a bit demented.

One of the most powerful albums of the Rock era, a shocking collection of rock and soul oldies and newies, of note three tracks cut in 1965 w Jimi Hendrix and Billy Preston, the ballad Don't Know what You Got , 1-2 and dancing All Around the World, a terrific rocking 4-4 , w pounding piano and Richard Singjng his ever loving brains out! (This is a uk product ; in 1974, a modified version of this l.p. Was issued , domestically , with another Richard - Hendrix song). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
