    This album has been out of print for near on 50 years and is a 100% essential cornerstone deep, deep spiritual jazz release - don't miss out!

    Seminal spiritual jazz masterpiece from 1969! Horace Tapscott's debut (and only) release for a major label - Flying Dutchman - occurred at the height of the civil rights/black power movement in the USA. Soon after the Watts Riots (65), Tapscott was the central figure at the heart of the community music scene (a precursor to that of Thundercat, Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus almost 50 years later).

    Flying Dutchman was the only major label that Tapscott trusted to release his music - a testament to founder Bob Thiele who had produced John Coltrane's seminal Impulse releases throughout the 1960s. At the same time as Tapscott, Flying Dutchman signed Gil Scott Heron and Leon Thomas.
