"The so called ‘late 60’s’ didn't really end until about 1972, and this album is further proof of that. Recorded in 1971, ‘Things have got to Change’ is about as late 60’s as you can get with its themes of revolution and black power. It might be easy for some to write this off as some sort of period kitsch, but look past its 60s stereotypical trappings and give it a hard listen and you will find some real genius at work here. ‘Money Blues’ and ‘Things have got to Change’ are both side long ‘jams’ that have very spare riffs, rhythms and chants to work with, yet both manage to maintain interest over fifteen plus minutes. The odd track out is side two opener, ‘Dr King, the Peaceful Warrior’, which is a quiet abstract two and a half minute ballad that features Archie’s tenor with Cal Massey’s electric piano.
Recorded in New Jersey. 17th May, 1971
