AS should reissue New Blood and this recording as a companion to Bloodlines!

The performances, while more "R&B" (i.e., skewing more towards "More & More" and less toward the more subtle and exquisitely luxuriant Halligan/Lipsius arrangements of the first four LP's) than the iconic first four albums featured on AS's Bloodlines boxset, this and the New Blood record are unjustly overlooked masterpieces, even if cut from a different bolt of "Jazz/Rock" cloth. Recorded at Electric Lady and produced by Steve Tyrell, the audio is absolutely worthy of the Acoustic Sounds remastering magic. The horns, as was the case with the first four records, feature nearly unmatched musical/technical fearlessness (with future Blues Brothers Lou Marini, Jr. and Tom "Bones" Malone helping veterans Lew Soloff and David Bargeron) with microsecond precision and flawless execution. IMO, this is what really separates those first six albums from most of the ones that followed. (RIP, Lew.) Fielder's Bass and the low B3/Leslie notes on the track "Song For John" are bonuses!
