    This session was recorded on Nov 10 1967, the day that I was born. It is a great record—and not just because of that fact!

        The last track- perhaps the best- is titled 'The Cry of MY People' not simply 'the people'.

          Is it cliché to call any album (Blue Note or otherwise) from the post-bop '60s "underrated"? It's probably overdone, yeah - but I'm doing this for that modern kid, that young buck that just discovered Lee Morgan and wound up here - staring the year 1967 in the face. Looking at the superimposed cover artwork and seeing titles like "The Sixth Sense," "Psychedelic" and "Afreaka" - one might be led to believe that they've found a late-period group of ex-Messengers doing some wicked bit of rock-influenced fusion. Though this is not the case, it does portray a fine acoustic set of standards and originals. It obviously won't live up to the earlier records by the prolific Morgan - but that being said - some really fine tunes came out of this date. Some of it verges on the less-than-serious boogie that certain critics balked at, but tracks like "Afreaka" and "Short Count" are straight burners! Hard Bop like it was meant to be.
          While I wouldn't call it essential, this album could potentially serve as a nice starting platform for someone looking to penetrate the less-pure side of Lee's discography, while still hearing something real and good. It's accessible, but certainly more straight-up than other "Pop-Bop" works like 1969's "Charisma," and there's not a single Beatles cover on it - so that's usually a plus.
          Overlooked, but still worthy. You really can't go wrong with players like this, so check it out.
