Raw Root is probably the weakest of Harold Alexander's albums, but still a solid release if you like your flute rare-groove stuff. This album is much more soulful and mellow than his Flying Dutchman releases. You don't get so much of that freaky scat stuff he does on those earlier albums, on here there's much more of a mellow groove throughout, and also much more in the way of a tradition song structure. Stand out tracks "Down Home" "Country Soul" & "Sandy's Love". This is the only release by Harold Alexander not on the Flying Dutchman label, and at the time of writing (14Jun08) yet to be reissued.
