This is a great album. I bought it in 1978 and haven't seen it anywhere since!
The first 4 tracks made up side one and side 2 was all one long track (Sangam), which has
Cherry on organ and Khan on tabla.

It's too fast! It's playing a tone too fast... I just checked it against the vinyl and the rip I posted on andifihadtwocoats... and I swear, your turntable's spinning too fast. Like, a whole tone. I'm positive it's not me spinning to slow.

I have this ripped to .aif so I can repost it .flac'd or whatever, but in the meantime listen to this (aac) and... well, judge for yourselves..!

La Otra Gente said...

Oops, sorry: here's the link

(This is only one track, Air Mail, just so you can hear the difference...)

vesper said...

All right, feel free to repost it!

La Otra Gente said...

Nice rip! Good job on the vinyl transfer whoever did it. Doesn't sound too fast to me. The playing on here is very reminiscent of the recordings on Latif Ahmed Khan's 'Solo Tabla' cd, which was recorded in Switzerland in 1976/77.
He had a tremendous original groove, with a funkiness that is missing from the more traditional-minded tabla players.

Vesper,

Thanks for sharing this! Don Cherry's releases are so varied in sound, and he is a truly prolific musician with a knack to play just about any type of music. This sounds like trance-inducing Jazz with an Indian raga backdrop. Definitely worth checking out.

What an amazing album. Thanks, Vesper.

Can anyone recommend anything on a similar tip, please?

I'm sure this man is God's right hand man on earth! Thanks again

Thanks for posting this, but none of the links (to the "slow" or "fast" versions) work for me. Any chance of re-posting?
Cheers,
HatAndBeard

vesper said...

HatAndBeard said...

vesper,
Thanks! The lix.in link still hangs up in Firefox, my usual browser, but works fine in Safari. Wierd.
So now I'm looking fwd to listening when the dl finishes.
Cheers,
HatAndBeard
