AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
Pianist Joe Sample’s Warner Bros. session mostly features relaxed acoustic music. Sample emphasizes his original melodies during his improvisations and is backed quite ably by bassist Jay Anderson, drummer Ralph Penland and an occasional percussionist. Most notable is that tenor saxophonist Charles Lloyd guests on three tracks, playing in his usual mellow version of John Coltrane. But in general this is a relaxing trio set, not overly memorable but relatively quite pleasing.

Tracklist:
1 Free Yourself 4:27
2 Black And White (As Simple As) 5:30
3 Clifton’s Gold 7:40
4 Old Places Old Faces 5:16
5 Tones For Ben 3:03
6 Hippies On A Corner 5:57
7 Souly Creole 6:35
8 First Love 4:41
9 Miles Of Blue (Blue Miles) 6:05
10 Angels On My Mind 5:35
