Produced and issued by
Charles 'Bobo' Shaw himself, Red, Black & Green, by "Solidarity Unit,
Inc." documents what happened inside "the bag room" in st.
louis, mo, the day Jimi Hendrix died. Shaw
captured his ten piece ensemble's raw teeming caterwaul in a low-res recording
as gloriously blunt as his b&w cover art.
lake & bowie were by this time already powerful soloists, & both
declaim fervently and damn near relentlessly over Shaw's swaggering themes.
Dead at age 34 and recorded just four times, guitarist Richard Martin's
performance is a true revelation; as Martin leaps from blues idioms to
screaming attacks to pure howling feedback, one wonders if even Sonny Sharrock
reached these places with the instrument.
furious kit & hand drumming, violently rattling little instruments,
jabbing percussive rhodes, thundering bass guitar, these guys don't hold back!
easy to say "lost underground free jazz classic," but that's the real
(EXCERPT FROM AN ANONYMOUS ONLINE REVIEW)
Recorded on the day of Jimi
Hendrix's death and dedicated to his memory, the music has an incendiary power,
always alert and driving, but with sudden explosive entries by the two trumpets
that suggest the drama and power of R ‘n' B. While many of the instruments blur
into a collective roar, there are some very fine moments from Oliver Lake,
already playing with a controlled frenzy, and Joseph Bowie, whose trombone
possesses a fluid bluster. There's also a rare appearance by a very intense
Richard Martin, one of the first guitarists to begin assembling a personal
vocabulary from free jazz and rock. The concluding moments of the side-long
"Beyond the New Horizon" present a lyrical postlude to the heat, with
just Lake and Shaw on flute and drums

unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!;

WE GRADE THE VINYL AS EXCELLENT.
This is one of those albums that are somewhat difficult to grade. It is
somewhere between VG++ and NEAR MINT, just a notch below NEAR MINT. A
few light abrasions ARE visible, but they are extremely shallow,
superficial and only moderately
visually distracting (nothing significant).For the most part, the vinyl looks
impeccable without any MAJOR visual flaws or imperfections. Much of the
original luster is intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.
The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which
was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on
such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not
expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!
Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not
an inferior, digital recording!!!
THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT VERY GOOD++ (VG++).
The following flaws or
imperfections are noted on the cover:
