Love, Sex, and the Zodiac is an album by jazz saxophonist Cannonball Adderley recorded in Berkeley, California in 1970, but not released on the Fantasy label until 1974, featuring performances by Adderley's Quintet featuring Nat Adderley, Hal Galper, Walter Booker and Roy McCurdy with guest appearances by George Duke and Jimmy Jones and narration by Rick Holmes.[1]


The Allmusic review awarded the album 1 star, stating that "The end result is too frivolous to find favor with those who take astrology seriously, yet too serious-minded to be nearly as funny as intentional parodies of self-helpish narratives".[2]
