It's hard to get any more tripped out than this at the end of the 60s – and this one and only album by Fool kind of out-Peppers Sgt Peppers!

One of the few albums ever cut by this under-discovered California quartet – a cool little group who mix post punk elements with some warmer ideas too – sometimes using jazzy inflections on the guitar and keyboards, at a level that reminds us a bit of some of the more subtle groups from ...

Prestige/OJC, 1961. New Copy ... $5.99 11.98
Gutsy tenor work from Jimmy Forrest – a player who was poised to rival Sonny Stitt and Gene Ammons at the start of the 60s, and who could have easily done so, given the strength of his work for Prestige!

Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1979. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
We love Sonny Fortune – because he always plays so great! Sonny started as more of an acoustic soul jazz player – but by the time of this session, he's working with a lot of electric backing, in a fusiony mode that should dampen his enthusiasm, but which only seems to spur him onto new ...
