Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Friday, The 13th. Alive Records Alive0010/10, 1995.

John Sinclair is legendary as the man who guided the rock & revolution MC-5 to early fame, as the leader of the White Panther Party, as the political prisoner in the early days of the War on Drugs whose 1971 release from a 9-1/2-to-10-year sentence for possession of two joints was secured by high-profile supporters like John Lennon & Stevie Wonder.

But in subsequent years John Sinclair forged a whole new legend as a New Orleans-based preacher of the power of blues & jazz, "his love & knowledge of which form the basis of his wonderful spoken-word performances" (John Strausbaugh, New York Press) & popular award-winning music programs for WWOZ Radio.

This 10" disc features: John Sinclair - verse & recitation; Wayne Kramer (MC-5) - lead guitar; Marion Brown - alto saxophone; & The Blues Scholars: Michael Ray - trumpet & percussion; Richard Theodore - alto saxophone & bass clarinet; Nicholas Santenbach - tenor saxophone; Phil DeVille - electric guitar; "Lucky" Joe Drake - electric bass; & Michael "Lightning Boy" Voelker - drums.

  2. Hey Nathan. I'm sorry that I didn't write you sooner. I've just had a lot of personal problems to deal with lately. Thank you very much for providing both the BBQ and Gits albums that I requested. I would like to take you up on the Reigning Sound albums I requested if the offer still stands. Thank you once again. Take care.
