This Impulse! classic is one of the saxophonist's most lasting and enduring works. With its powerful avant-garde tracks and strong political messages, the 1972 album is one of Archie Shepp's most successful large-group projects. Rolling Stone wrote that Attica Blues is "not just a masterpiece of protest, it is more a political/religious experience - an appeal to higher human consciousness to, for God's sake, help us out of this torment."
