Notes

Douglas Payne , who runs an extensive website about all the CTI and KUDU releases, and wrote cover notes for many of the anniversary release/re-masters explains exactly why the album "Dune" was actually deleted from the CTI catalogue in 1977. Payne's website includes an article, by Arnaldo DeSouteiro, Brazil’s leading jazz producer and CTI historian, in where he says:

"David Matthews did a second and last album as a leader for CTI, Dune, an artistically successful project who turned out to be a commercial fiasco thanks to the imprudence of CTI’s legal management. Since CTI had not secured writer Frank Herbert’s authorization to use his novel Dune as the thematic center piece for the album, Herbert filed a law suit against CTI and won, forcing the label to delete it from catalog. For this reason, that magnificent album was never reissued in the USA, although a CD reissue came out in Japan by King Records in 1994."

      Essentially this is an extremely cheesy Dune/Star Wars big band cash in courtesy of CTI. However, the creativity and enduring digging philosophy of Hip Hop, particularly DJ’s & their open ears inexplicably resulted in songs such as Sandworms becoming a staple. It’s worth the purchase for that track alone.
      Oh, and Doom flipped the guitar passage of Space Oddity for Rap Snitch Knish’s, another example of an odd man’s ear catching a lick on a terrible, terrible song and creating gold.

            A bit uneven, this. Side A comprises "Dune" while side B comprises a mish-mish/compilation of misc. "Sci Fi" interpretations (half of which involve Star Wars. 1977. Go figure...). The Dune tracks are basically Jazz Fusion "CTI Lite", but with a little too much orchestration for my tastes. I still enjoy it, overall, probably as much for the kitsch factor than anything else. Ditto, even more so, for the second side.
