Black Rhythm Happening (the second Blue Note album by Eddie Gale) was 
released in 1969 and includes jazz heavy weight Elvin Jones on drums and 
sax man Jimmy Lyons. Again the mix is a blend of soul jazz, free form 
freak outs, and a gospel influenced street choir. Suggested listening 
for fans of Sun Ra & Brother Ah, John Coltrane's late 60's LPs, and 
Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler's more groove oriented recordings. The 
original vinyl LPs go for big bucks on Ebay, this is the first time this 
Blue Note album has ever been reissued on vinyl. Remastered from the 
original master tapes on 180 gram vinyl. All original artwork in a 
megalush gatefold sleeve featuring detailed liner notes.

Cat. number: 4M 128
