"Hey, Love" by The New Rotary Connection

Produced by Charles Stepney (1971 Cadet Concept)

This Album by The New Rotary Connection has some classic material. "I am The Blackgold Of The Sun" and "Love Has Fallen On Me" to name but two. The latter received some recent exposure because it was sampled, rather listlessly by the popular rapper Common. Still that assault on this material will be forgotten soon enough and this classic will endure as it has done since it's release in 1971.
