Originally issued by Island in 1973. Stomu Yamash'ta is a master percussionist who studied jazz drumming at Berklee School of Jazz. In the 1970s, he recorded a string of innovative albums for Island records fusing his percussion talents with jazz, electronic and classical music. Freedom Is Frightening features a fine band, including Soft Machine bass guitarist Hugh Hopper and guitarist Gary Boyle. It was a fine achievement which propelled Yamash'ta to a wider audience which would eventually lead to his acclaimed Go albums featuring collaborators Steve Winwood, Michael Shrieve, and Klaus Schulze. Never before released on CD, this Esoteric reissue has been remastered from the original master tapes and fully restores the original vinyl artwork and continues Esoteric's series of Yamash'ta's work for Island Records.
