Set Us Free is the fifth album by American organist Reuben Wilson recorded in 1971 and released on the Blue Note label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars and stated "it's a wildly textured and seamless aural meld of gritty B-3 jams, smooth yet psychedelic soul, rock, pop, and funk... somehow, this ambitious, lushly orchestrated album not only sounds current, but still ahead of its time. Highly recommended".[2]
