Special gatefold gold vinyl edition LP

Limited to 1,000 copies worldwide!

A funkier direction somewhere between soul, jazz, spiritual jazz, fusion and post-bop

Nestled somewhere between the soul jazz, spiritual jazz, fusion, and post-bop subgenres, 1974's Cosmic Funk headed, as the title indicates, in a funkier direction, with Lonnie Liston Smith's brother Donald contributing smooth vocal stylings to John Coltrane's "Naima" among other tunes. A transitional work but a fascinating one, with surehanded production once again from Bob Thiele. We've pressed up 1,000 copies in limited edition gold vinyl inside the original gatefold album art...another "post-fusion" masterwork from the Lonnie Liston Smith and the Cosmic Echoes!

Great Music Not Served Well by the Production

I bought this to replace my original copy of this title. The original copy is a bit noisy and has a few (very few) pops.

Well, this was a mistake. The Real Gone version is overly bright and the vocals sound as if a banshee is singing. Just to be sure, I immediately played my original copy and the brightness was gone. It became easy to recognize that a human was singing.

If you want this title, find a good used copy.
