Song notes[edit]

Remember Rockefeller at Attica[edit]

This track is dedicated to the Attica Prison Riots of 1971 and the Governor of New York State at that time, Nelson Rockefeller.

Devil Blues[edit]

The lyrics are by Clarence Gatemouth Brown, but the melody is newly composed by vocalist and saxophonist George Adams. Charles Mingus also has composing credits, possibly for the horn lines which follow the singing.
