Beaver Harris always has an amazing way of holding things together – a kind of soulful unity he seems to have learned from Archie Shepp – which really holds our interest in a long-form record like this! The title track spans most of both sides of the album – the searing original "Necaumongus", performed by a group that features Harris on drums, Ken McIntyre on alto and flute, Ricky Ford on tenor, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, Cameron Brown on bass, and Don Pullen on piano – all coming together with sounds that are bold one minute, sensitive the next – a depth of performance that's simply breathtaking, especially as the piece hits its more sensitive second half. The album follows with "Well Kept Secret", a tune that's a bit more offbeat, yet still has its own core too – and which features unusual steel drum work from Francis Hayes!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Revelation
Black Jazz, 1973. New Copy (reissue)

Saturn, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)

Pilz/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A great step forward for Popul Vuh – a set that's still filled with all the amazing electronics of the group's previous records, but which also has even more focus and tunefulness too – yet all in a way that's still pretty darn far out overall! The album's got a slightly spiritual bent ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wah Wah (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A leaner lineup of Popul Vuh – mostly guitar and piano or keyboard lines, mixed with percussion – but a record that also has some of the group's most tuneful moments of the early 70s – and a sound that really shows them moving forward with a new sort of energy! Most of the tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
