At first only "Love has Come Around" appealed to me from this album (and yes, I still find it a masterpiece), but the rest of the LP has really grown on me. Think of this as an Isaac Hayes album--that is essentially what it is.

This rare CD issue on Wounded Bird was mastered very well, btw.

Isaac Hayes' touch is all over this underrated gem. It's worth mentioning that he produced this album, as well as writing two songs on here (he co-wrote "I Love Your Love," too.) The now OOP Wounded Bird reissue sounds identical to my original 1981 Elektra vinyl copy. Full and dynamic.
