Further Fire Music – Dedication Series/Vol XVII

LP (Item 15942) ABC, 1965/1978 — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Essential 2LP set that's probably one of the best Archie Shepp albums from the 60's! The record is a mix of tracks from Shepp's previous Impulse recordings – plus some other stuff that was recorded during the same sessions, but not released until this volume came out. A lot of the material has Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, and he's playing here with that great "hard" sound that shows up on only a few of his avant recordings from the 60's. Titles include "Scag", "The Mac Man (alternate)", "The Chased (parts 1 & 2)", and "The Pickaninny".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some ring wear and a bumped corner.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

BYG/Affinity (UK), 1969. Near Mint-
One of the hardest to find of the Shepp albums for Actuel, especially in this original format! These are long, spiritual tracks that comprise some of his best European recordings of the decade, and the titles include "There is a Balm in Gilead", "Touareg", and "My ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sea Of Faces
Black Saint (Italy), 1975. Very Good Gatefold
A great little set from Archie Shepp – one of his strongest of the 70s, and a real return to the kind of spiritual jamming he was doing at the end of his time with Impulse Records! The album's well-known for it's great track "Song For Mozambique" – a spare and righteous ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tray Of Silver
Denon (Japan), 1979. Near Mint-
One of Shepp's excellent straight sides from the late 70s – and like the rest of the best, recorded as a Japanese-only session for Denon. The "silver" in the title is Horace Silver – as 3 of the album's 4 long tracks are Silver compositions – played by Shepp with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Archie Shepp

Doodlin
Inner City, 1976. Near Mint-
A very different album from Archie Shepp – and an introspective record that shows a whole new side of his talents! For the session, Shepp plays piano, not tenor – an instrument he handles with an angular, modern tone – one that seems to echo bits of Herbie Nichols and Thelonious ... LP, Vinyl record album

Archie Shepp

Montreux One
Arista Freedom, 1975. Near Mint-
Great live material from Shepp – not out or crazy, but also not spiritual or hippy dippy, either. The record's kind of a perfectly soulful straight ahead set – in a mode that hints at the traditional direction Shepp would take at the time, but with a lot more interesting moments. The ...

Fire Music
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
Fantastic stuff – easily one of Archie Shepp's greatest albums, and certainly one of the pivotal points of 60s avant garde jazz! The album features Shepp leading a crack "new thing" line up that includes Ted Curson on trumpet, Marion Brown on alto, Joe Chambers on drums, Reggie ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
A classic bit of avant Shepp for Impulse – recorded in the mid 60s, at the same time as the Live in San Francisco album, with the same quintet, but not issued until years later! The album is in a different vein than the San Francisco album – one that shows the band stretching out more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Live In San Francisco
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great counterpart to some of Archie Shepp's studio albums for Impulse – a live date recorded in San Francisco, with a slightly freer, sharper edge! The sound is almost free at times, but always with that strong sense of focus that Archie brought to his brilliant work of the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1956. Very Good
Fantastic – and an important early album from Quincy Jones! Q's working here in some of his hippest settings of the 50s – scoring longish versions of jazz tunes for groups that include players like Lucky Thompson on tenor, Herbie Mann on flute, Art Farmer on trumpet, Phil Woods and ...

ABC/MCA, 1967. Near Mint-
A surprising gem from Louis' later years – most famous for the title hit, but a great album all the way through! Louis is more of a singer than a musician on the set – and he's working with arrangements steeped in warmth and nostalgia – going for an instantly-ancient sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album
