Although Jimmy Forrest is well known for composing and playing the huge R&B hit "Night Train," his bebop tenor sax playing ranks among the best. This 1959 session features the very first recording of guitarist Grant Green who later went on to Blue Note records. These were also early recordings of drummer Elvin Jones who was yet to join the legendary John Coltrane Quartet. The less than gentle title of this album should give you a gleaming insight to the hearty type of offering enclosed; uninhibited mainstream bebop.

To create the production master for this product, the original analog master tapes were played on an optimized Otari MTR10 and copied to a newly refurbished Ampex ATR 102 using RMGI SM-900 tape stock. Subsequent copies were made on more Otari MTR10s using SM-911 tape stock. Copies are available for purchase in half-track format recorded at 15ips (IEC) on two 10-inch reels housed in two cardboard boxes with UV-coated cover art and liner information, then housed inside a cardboard slipcase.
