Out of stock

2013 release. Previously unavailable, this unearthed 1968 BBC Session contains markedly different versions from Michael Garrick's 1970 classic 'Heart Is A Lotus' album. A Londoner's rain-soaked riposte to modal jazz exotica, this long lost recording is already being hailed as an essential release. Michael Garrick’s 1970 LP Heart Is A Lotus went on to become one of the most important British jazz albums of the subsequent decade. For a few years prior to the record’s release Garrick and his sextet were jamming the tracks that would become Heart Is A Lotus with Don Rendell and Ian Carr. This session, recorded at the BBC in 1968, radically reconfigures the freeform, vaguely acidic freakouts of the final LP. An essential joining of dots. 180gr. Reissue, includes free download code sticker. Curated, analogue mastered and cut at Gearbox Studio
