Sealed, Out Of Print Reissue Of The 1963 Classic With The Original Artwork Reproduced. β€œIt's Really A Shame That The World Only Got Two Vi Redd Records. A Female Saxophonist Brings Something A Little Different To The Table Than Her Male Counterparts. There's No Attempt To Overpower A Listener Here, No Charging Brutality, Brusquely Shoving The Other Bandmembers Aside To Show Whose Is The Longest. Rather, The Mood Is Relaxed And Pensive, A Vibe Perhaps Accentuated By Jennell Hawkins On Organ. Not To Belabor An Obvious Point, But One Woman On The Stand Was A Rarity. Two Or More Usually Would Only Have Happened At The Time As Some Sort Of Freakish Promotional Activity. This Record Is A Sterling Example Of What The Music Lost In The Name Of Its Phallocentricity. Vi Redd Demonstrates A Thoughtful Tone And A Careful Respect For Those Around Here. Her Solos Are Pithy And Directly To The Point. Her Singing, As Always, Is A Fragile Joy. Quite Honestly, There's Really Nothing Quite Like Her Records. The Closest Thing Would Probably Be Chet Baker's Records, But He Did Not Cut A Side As Coherent In Mood Or Vision As These Are. Buy These Records.” – Rob Ferrier, AMG
