Hubert Laws is best known for his small group dinner jazz-style material. It's a sound that can easily become background music and is too smooth for modern tastes. This album is features one notable exception, the great late 70s funk instrumental 'School's Out (Benji's Theme)' and is worth its bargain-bin price tag for that track alone. The film starred Paul 'Gordon's War' Winfield and Cicely Tyson and was based on the novel by Alice Childress.

I believe the picture below the original vinyl scans is from Isbums Place where he suggested You use it as the frontcover for Your CD. I kept it from the previous posting of this. I hope he doesn't mind, it's quite noce work.
