Today’s LP pick-ups

LP Pick ups from this afternoon: usually I don’t buy much at all when I stop by a local LP store (I’m picky and what I like just doesn’t show up in the recent arrivals bins much), but today was the exception. Four solid LPs of mostly free improv. I just couldn’t pass it up. We have Leo Smith & New Dalta Ahkri ‘Go in Numbers’ LP on Black Saint, Evan Parker and Paul Lytton ‘Ra’ LP on Ring, Sun Ra ‘Pathways to Unknown Worlds’ on Impulse, and ‘The Storming of the Winter Palace’ by Irene Schweiser, George Lewis, Joelle Leandre, Gunter Sommer, and Maggie Nichols on Intakt. All are good and the Parker/Lytton duo is a revelation. The Leo Smith is gem as is most everything he does. The Sun Ra is a classic set from 1973 and since I’m not about to try and start hunting down Saturn originals, this Impulse reissue will do just fine. ‘The Storming of the Winter Palace’ will take some adjustment on my part due to some out vocalizing but is well worth the $8 I paid for it.

So LP hounds it’s still worth stopping by the the local shop as you never know what you’ll find!

Clockwise from the top right: Evan Parker & Paul Lytton ‘Ra’, Irene Schweizer, George Lewis, etc. ‘The Storming of the Winter Palace’, Sun Ra ‘Pathways to Unknown Worlds’, Leo Smith & New Dalta Ahkri ‘Go in Numbers’.
