This album is genius. It feels isolated yet complete, concerned mostly with itself, on a carrier frequency of the music of the 60s, 70s, and a synthesis of electronic that was to come. The inclusion of tracks from Freedom Flight from 1971 is a welcome bonus, as I learned only once I put it on the platter that it hasn't been reissued on vinyl since 1972. The eponymous track is worth the price alone. I thought I'd mistakenly put on a mis-pressing of Miles Davis from the same era.

Has anyone A/B'd this pressing against the new Music On Vinyl, Epic, or original pressings? I'm tempted to buy a copy of each to listen closely. Worst case scenario they'd be copies to share with friends.

The art... Luaka Bop took a crap all over this one. It's terrible. I could barely read the contents. It must have popped off the shelf when it was released in the early 2000s, but it doesn't do justice to the music, and it shouldn't have been issued if it didn't improve on the original. I'm tempted to buy a tattered sleeve from the original pressing and swap it out. Thank goodness Luaka Bop did a much better job with the recent Onyeabor boxset.
