I took a huge musical slap when I found this artist at random from a great compilation , "Funk Cargo" I recommend spake same occasion. This album is a gift from heaven, a pearl buried deep underground, it is mandatory to dig and make known to the world.

There is a lot of spirituality, peace and love in this music Willie Wright create a scrapbook legend, the best I've heard , and God knows that I listened in . Fort Wayne thank you for putting it in its entirety, and thanks to Numero Group to have re-edited because it was not found, or if not crazy prices
