Yaqub Malik (formerly Mack Spears) .... who at 19 was chosen as the successor to Charlie Parker & shared the stage with Bud Powell, Duke Jordan, Elmo Hope & even the legendary Miles Davis....
About six years ago I got this rip from another blog. I don't remember from where. Probably it was El Reza's old blog.
But this rip is in flac (I checked it) and not in mp3.
However - thanks to the original uploader and for the LP rip.
Two weeks ago I visited a friend in Potsdam (near Berlin). During the two days of my visit he got the LP.
We listened to it and I've again enjoyed especially the first track on side A.
But the whole LP is thoroughly enjoyable. This is how I was reminded about the files on my pc.
I've removed manually a few clicks and one heavy point of blasting - that's it.
