A CD reissue of an old Mayfield platter that didn’t garner as much interest as some of his other solo releases, and for good reason: Mayfield was experimenting with his sound. After the first three songs nothing else really works until the last cut: “Come Free Your People,” one of Mayfield’s best albeit little-known message songs. The most engaging of the eight tunes are the reggae-influenced “She Don’t Love Nobody Else,” “Toot an’ Toot an’ Toot,” and the lilting “Baby Doll.”
