The sessions Archie Shepp led for BYG over five days in August 1969 is a body of work that merits revisiting outside the context to the entire Actuel series and well-trodden trope of the African American avant-garde in radical Paris. The resulting albums were not ad hoc firestorms. rather, they were considered statements mirroring the pan-styltstic project of his Impulse!, albums. Shepp's BYGs are occasanalry framed as somewhat anomalous items in his discography, but their subject is the same as that of his other albums the African American music continuum.
