Despite the lack of any hits to equal "Street Life", the album is still considered memorable and features an appearance from Bill Withers on the first track, "Soul Shadows".

"Amandla" was Miles' perfect departure from "Tutu", and a comeback for himself and his right-hand man, the composer Marcus Miller.
