Eugene McDaniels was a song writer who, apparently, got wrapped up in the liberation-based movements going on in the sixties and seventies. When this album came out, he was often referred to as the "Left Rev M C D," aka preacher to the psychedelic choir. His album Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse is a masterpiece of jazz-funk and message-based lyrics. When it came out, it couldn't get off the store shelf. Twenty years later, it was sampled by the hiphop community and it disappeared from the shelves only to return for a hefty three figure price- IF you can find a copy.
