Overview

The first track is an untitled duet between Jimi Hendrix-inspired guitarist and Canned Heat member Henry Vestine and Ayler on bagpipe.

The second track contains poetry spoken eloquently by a women, posing questions which Ayler's sax answers.

"Toiling" is a guitar-driven blues track.

On "Desert Blood", Ayler sings jazz-vocals reminiscent of Sun Ra's lady singer, June Tyson.

The remainder of the album is the soulful style of Free jazz more familiar to Ayler's audience.
