Based in Indianapolis in the early 1970s, Amnesty released only two obscure 45s in their recording career. Birthed from the same scene as the Ebony Rhythm Band, Amnesty had a political edge, and the hardest brass section since The Kashmere Stage Band. In 1973 Amnesty recorded five hard, vocal funk numbers alongside sweet funk ballads and a handful of demos based around nothing more than guitar accompaniment. Arranged with dangerous complexity and performed with precision, this is arguably the most unique soul and funk to originate from Naptown, and some of the best music of its kind.

Amnesty’s biting, difficult-to-categorize progressive rock, soul, and funk stretched beyond Indianpolis’s bounds, and the band didn’t have a label to take them to the next level. Now-Again released the full album for the first time in 2007

Sampled by Kanye West for "Lift Yourself"
