For those of you who care for such things, there have been two recent Reuben Wilson reissues of great interest.  Blue Note has finally issued "Set Us Free" on CD as part of their Rare Grooves series and Dusty Groove has reissued "Got To Get Your Own" on CD for the first time.  

"Set Us Free" is an amazing blend of jazz, funk, psychedelia and R&B from the early 1970's, while "Got to Get Your Own" is straight up mid-70's funk with not a weak track to be had on either. 

Interesting footnote is that when informing a good friend of mine (and fellow jazz cat) about the reissues, he told me that when he interviewed Reuben back in college, Reuben told him that "Got To Get Your Own" was his favorite record that he had made !!
