By A mind with no ceiling  from http://oufarkhan.blogspot.com

The third album by Syreeta, that time backed by Leon Ware on the Tamla imprint, including the participation of Gary Bartz on a couple of tracks. Quoting Dusty Groove, as often, this is 'beautiful spacey soul from Syreeta -- and proof that she was one of Motown's great lost talents of the 70s! Leon Ware did the production, and Syreeta's high Minnie Riperton-esque voice is backed by a smooth set of mellow grooves with lots of cool electronic bits and weird moogy parts that remind us of Ware's own "Musical Massage" LP.

The whole thing's a wonderful blend of spacey soul -- and we rank it right up there with the best work by Ware, Riperton, and some of our other 70s mellow soul favorites. Tracks include "I Don't Know", "Rest Yourself", "One To One", and my personal fave "Tiki Tiki Donga".

Beautiful cover art, too!
