I think this is very rare item of Human Arts Ensemble. Luther Thomas takes leader initiative. But different from
"Funkey Donkey", this is more abstract form than funk music.
Human Arts Ensemble starts in AACM style performance in begining time. Then their style change in soul & funk music.
I think this is interesting record to show their way to change, though quality of music would not be high enough their other issued albums.
