You could easily make 4 albums from the ideas covered in this. They must have been touched by God when this was recorded because it still evokes just as strong a feeling, if not stronger, since my first listen.

Let me cry for a while above this surrealistic-giantistic record.
Please show me nowadays another record from any kind of genre,what it comes nearly close for this one... how many ideas and feeling, rhythm in one song like chameleon.. almost 40 minutes in heaven. ahh shameful days are our days, new releases with 80-90 minutes of shit.
THIS one is a Masterpiece!

Without a doubt one of the greatest musical statements ever made. I bought the CD when I was 16 and still consider it among my top five favorite albums of all time. Head Hunters is music you can feel in your gut AND your heart.

Is there a greater keyboardist alive today than Mr. Hancock? I seriously doubt it.
