Stan Tracey-Mike Osborne Original 1972


Here's a further commemorative tribute to to the late great Stan Tracey, in a duo setting with equally legendary saxophonist Mike Osborne.. recorded in 1971 for Cadillac , Ogun also released a collaboration between the two, 'Tandem' in 1977.

This features Tracey in seldom heard completely free modality, something he returned to later in life in a  fabulous series of duets with Evan Parker , which are available(and whole heartedly recommended!) on Parker's Psi ,label .
This was transferred some years ago from a friends quite battered copy , the low res covers are from discogs.
no eq, compression or digi syrup employed, sweeten to taste!

Enjoy!

Hello
it is a fantastic duo but it is a pity that the transfer is not good. There are important surface noise in the beginning of each sides that are not due to the pressing quality of the lp. In fact I suppose that the lp have been cleaned just before the transfer but when cleaning a lp with isopropanol alcool for exemple you have to play it once before the transfer. The first playing will finish to clean it. It is really a pity because the pressing of this lp seems absolutely correct.
