Autophysiopsychic is an album by American multi-instrumentalist and composer Yusef Lateef recorded in 1977 and released on the CTI label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review stated "Autophysiopsychic is probably the single album that many Yusef Lateef fans either love or hate the most... five fat slices of original funk that have far more in common with the sounds of Chocolate City than with the bop sounds of 52nd Street. Autophysiopsychic is awash in the soft soul-funk-jazz sound typical of Creed Taylor's (CTI) productions in the 1970s... Not the most typical album in Lateef's wide-ranging catalog, but certainly the most fun".[2]
