    My favorite album ever never far from the deck . Bought an import copy in 1973 i I think thats when it came out , the sleeve is in a frame on my wall its probably one of the most powerfull pieces of sleeve art I have ever seen and as a young socialist really moved me ,some 40 odd years on it still does .

I dont normally like music vids watched this several times . I have allways seen soul music as a reflection/representation of the black experience from the Blues to Hip Hop so taking that on board for me this is soul and then some .
