Here's another old favourite ... promised to S..months ago ...sorry for the delay.
for all intents , in all but name this is the 3rd 'lost' New York art quartet album ...
Legend has it this was put out without Rudd's initial permission ..I'm not too clear on the substantive facts regarding its genesis...but hell....
.......What a stunning album, it's ...everything you'd expect from the front line ...+ Louis Moholo... I have no idea who Fin Von Eyben is , or what he went on to do .. but his playing here is a real surprise ... in the same ball park as Lewis Worrell or Reggie Workman (the NYAQ's other recorded bassists).
This is ripped from my crackly 40 year old vinyl ..there are no major glitches ,just low level crackle through out.
This briefly resurfaced a few years ago on verve's Universel limited ed series ... which i think included the previously un released 'lost track'... ive never seen that CD , whatever the case its gone .... sold out at source (as they all are)
if anyone has the pristine CD- please post it Here preferably , anywhere really! ..... 'd love to hear it!
