I have this one but wanted to say what a great record. "Things have got to change...god dammit!"

They don't get any more direct than that!

Solomon said...

Thank you.

charlie said...

Yes, fantastic. Used to have the lp. Must be due for a reissue? Better than some of the other Shepp Verve have put out.

Excellent. Thank you very much.

Thanks a lot for this gem - I never knew it existed.

david_grundy said...

Oh yes! One of Shepp's best albums from this period, half-way between the free jazz and the straighter jazz of later years...Always loved Joe Lee Wilson's vocals. You don't happen to have the live album made by Archie Shepp's Attica Blues Big Band, do you? (Live at les Palace des Glaces, I think it's called). I've been trying to trakc it down for ages, but to no avail.

Can someone tell me where El Reza went?

It is GREAT to see this blog back up!

taro nombei said...

archie shepp... alright! last time i saw him (jsut a couple of years back) he was still blowing a mighty horn. so, that's something that didn't need to change.
many thanks indeed.

Max said...

Prof Babacar said...

Thx a lot I hadn't heard this one

thomas said...

Very good one... I have it on vinyl.

-> to david_grundy : I own a LP copy of the Attica Blues Big Band at the Palais des Glaces as well as several other rare european recordings of Archie Shepp and others. I would be glad to share but I have not much time to record the vinyls in mp3 format at the moment.
You can contact me at the following address :

Many thanks to Vesper for sharing
