Alice Coltrane
Transcendence

Significant changes in Alice Coltrane’s life happened in 1977, the year Transcendence was released. She became a Swamini, teaching Hindu and began performing and recording devotional chants. It does mean she more-or-less left jazz behind, but there's some bluesy organ on here! This was one of two LPs she released that year. Reissue LP on Antactica Starts Here.

Simon Finn
Pass The Distance

Pass The Distance by Simon Finn was originally released in 1970 and is a defining album in the history of psychedelic folk. It pushes the oddball leanings of Skip Spence and Pearls Before Swine to a new level of weird. One song only exists because one of his flatmates wrote down his mescaline-fuelled meanderings so he was able to remember them.  Finn is backed on the album by famous David Toop and Paul Burwell, two experts in free-improvising.

Curtis Mayfield
Curtis/Live!

A 1971 live album from Curtis Mayfield gets a tidy little reissue. Taped at a concert in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village fairly soon after Mayfield left The Temptations, Curtis/Live! shows him coming into his own as a solo performer. On this double LP Mayfield and his band blend the soul tunes of his old group with fiery conga-funk originals on this double LP.
