Famoudou Don Moye "Sun Percussion volume one" (1975, AECO 001) FLAC

A Chicago musicians series would not be complete without at least one record from the Art Ensemble, so here is the first LP on the group's own AECO label. It seems that this imprint was used first as a mean of publishing the first album-lenght solo works by the group's members, Don Moye opening the series with the present percussion LP, followed by Joseph Jarman's "Sunbound" (AECO 002) and Malachi Favors' "The Natural and the Spiritual" (AECO 003). Roscoe Mitchell had also issued his "Solo Saxophone Concerts" on Sackville the year before the beginning of the series. Could somebody who has heard the four albums comment and tell us if there is or not a significant relationship between them ?

Enjoy,
Pierre

Please note that the Jarman title is still available in .mp3 at Nothing Is :

And that the AECO label is also still in activity and has reissued some of the LPs on CD, in addition to the new recordings done along the years :

Hey Steve, thanks for the work involved in converting the .flacs. To put them in one file it is quite simple, you need to have an application capable of dealing with .rar files which I assume you have as you are able to unpack our uploads. With Windows and WINRAR or most of these softs, all you have to do it to select the files at once, right click on them then choose "add to archive". Then type the name of the compressed file and click on "compress" or equivalent.
Regarding the upload, here's a list of services that can hold your files :

Hope this help,

Great Music.

Thank you very much for making this available. Archeology of music ancient to the future.
But i wasn't satisfied with the edit. So, i hope it is ok, that i reworked the files a little bit. Pierre? :-D

I restored the lp rip from the flacs, did some small cuts and new track marks.
converted to mp3@192kbps:

Enjoy

Absolutely no problem Sam and great initiative :) , but you shouldn't have bothered as the rip is not very good. I hope to post another copy once I'll have purchased the vinyl myself ... this one was passed on to me and was recorded too loud and therefore clips a little.

Best,
Pierre

Hello all . . . many thanks for your efforts on this site. A repost of Sun Percussion would be really appreciated. I prefer mp3 but FLAC is okay too. Many thanks from Tejas.
