"based on the concept that everybody is talking about or interested in either astrology or sex, peace or piece, as the case may by. listen and enjoy, or disagree, as controversy is essential to expansion"
cannonball adderley's liner notes.
it isn't the funkiest/trippiest track on the album but it makes my day as a virgo myself:
beautiful cover art, incredible band and david axelrod production.

back in 1996, i spent a year in the united states and got the best job ever : buying "rare groove" records for selected french records stores. early on, i found a nice copy of "love, sex & the zodiac" for a few bucks and fell for it. lots of musical genres i love are blended altogether here: soul, jazz, funk, spoken word. sending this one back home to the guys was not an easy decision... and many more fine lp's were shipped and cruelly missed afterwards...
as dealers say : you better not get high on your own supply...
still, it took me years to grab it again in good condition at a decent price.
