Lou Bond. To The Establishment.

Light in the Attic records kills it with a bounty of incredible reissues from soul songwriters and troubadours from eras past. Lou Bond is no exception. He bounced around on the We Produce imprint of the legendary Stax label before disappearing into ether. He's as gifted vocally as some of his more popular peers from the early 70's, while maintaining a conscious message to most of his recordings. The little scat at the end of this song rivals Al Green's Memphis pastorals, with more depth than a typical love story. This is a 12-minute long eponymous powerhouse. "We might as well be free.."
