Steve Lacy Trio-Stalks, (Yoshizawa, Togashi),Nippon Columbia – YQ-7507-N -(1975)Flac upgrade from Vinyl Source

Here's a Flac Upgrade of something posted here from a tape source in mp3's a few years ago,this is ripped straight from a vinyl source .. of Stalks , one of Lacys most challenging 70's lp, and also apparently one of the rarest..

Yoshizawa and Togashi truly are Lacy's masterful peers here,matching his most provocative textural explorations in an astonishing counterpoint ,the three floating together as they sculpt the void..with an elasticity that seems unique to Lacy's Japanese Collaborations!
 Much thanks ..and more than a little love to Dave 'the Wane'from Tasmania for this fresh.... rip!!!

to which i've done absolutely nothing.. no pretending even for a moment that this is from a Digital source

YOu have brought tears to an old clown's eyes. This is a stone-cold ulra all-time killer classic favorite, of a perfect trio in Zen-like harmony of expression. The Sol society needs to DEMAND the record biz get this out before too long! Plus it inspires you to eat your good, clean vegatables!

Once again, thank you. keepers of the flame. cultural historians. I remember getting this lp in the mail when it came out. What an amazing production. The heavy gorgeous jacket and heavy faultless Japanese vinyl.
mad respect,

Of course a big thank you. But I remember another trio that never surfaced again with Kent Carter and Togashi in the same period or was it later?

Wow, this is gorgeous. I like the cassette rip sotise posted here aeons ago, and this one is just the improvement one would expect. There are some crackles & pops, of course, but nothing to distract from the quality of the performances. Really fantastic stuff from my favorite period of Lacy. Thanks to all involved!

Thrilled to find this. Thanks in advance for any additional Lacy rarities you may be able to share.

Yep - very very much appreciated.
I have the cassette rip which was one of my first downloads from IS - wayback as an anonymous and not commenting coward.

...dear M. - thank you for the upgrade and also for the 'upgrade' of my role here on IS - started through your lavish heart.

sotise said...

Yes Definitely essential , as are many missing lacy records from the 70's and later too, his vinyl only solo release on Roratorio for example (which i heard once!..but do not own).. i have a small handful more i can post ... but it would be great were others to chip in.

@E,WE are lucky to have made your acqaintance and that you climbed abord... its great to have you here buddy!, and everyone else too!

Incredible record - I can no longer tell if I have the upgrade version or not so if someone could re-up would be appreciated - unless someone can answer - does the upgrade version have some crackle from vinyl (not complaining) - never thought I'd hear these rare Japanese Lacy records
