This was one of those things I heard through a friend but was never able to track down. After years of looking I found it for a dollar. Then of course, I started to see it all the time (and I think they were all promo copies). And looking on line, I haven't seen this posted anywhere. And that's something that just needs to be corrected since this is one of the best guitar work outs I've ever heard. The first track is a 16 minute mind bender that blends the American primitivism of John Fahey, the jazz gypsy playing of Gabor Szabo, and the pan global explorations of Sandy Bull. The piece moves from meditative to freaked out and all places in between. Really, it's worth downloading for that one side long track alone. The rest is good too, but there was no way Sandy was going to top that cut. And this was put out by Herbie Mann's short lived Embryo imprint, showing that he was much cooler than how he looked on his Memphis Underground cover (remember Sonny Sharrock used to be in his band). Enough praise, just get the thing already. And sorry, but I didn't have time to label the tracks again (I know I hate that too).
