Heaven on Earth is an album by American organist Larry Young recorded in 1968 and released on the Blue Note label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars and stated "Organist Larry Young, who really found his own sound back in 1965 with the classic Unity album, is deep in the funk on this later Blue Note album... there are some explorative solos but the less imaginative funk rhythms lower the content of the music somewhat".[2]
