This is a re-up request for nijimasu.

It's the third time on IS. It was posted by Wallofsound in 2008 here, with a great written response to the music and by Onxidlib in 2001 here. The only reason I am re-posting, rather than adding live links to the earlier posts, is to showcase Klaus Baumgärtner's wonderful graphics, including the first cover.

A1. Black Magic Man
A2. Song For Laureen

B1. Hymn Of The Dragon Kings

Joe McPhee, tenor & soprano saxophone
Mike Kull, piano
Tyrone Crabb, bass & electric bass
Ernest Bostic, percussion

Recorded in concert at Vassar College, Poughkeepie, N.Y. on December 12, 1970.

Thank you very much for this.
Is this not the 1st release of Hat Hut?

One of the very best. This album's incredible, especially on the heels of Underground Railroad.

Is it possible to re-up this again? I've never heard Joe McPhee. I read this is one of his best.

Black Magic Man is available - it´s part of the Corbett vs Dempsey Nation Time box set;


Definitely worth getting.

Hi dgz - see comment above yours!
We don't post any music which is readily available - whatever the format...
