'Supermarket Blues' is a song in which he focuses on the racial acts, while 'The Parasite (for Buffy)' is a ten-minute tribute to the Native Americans. The album has been prized and sampled by the hip-hop community dozens of times. It is a dark and political psychedelic soul album with excellent grooves, a masterpiece which is now available again on vinyl.
