Reissue with latest 2014 DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. Rare live material from Charlie Parker – recorded in the very familiar territory of the Birdland nightclub, but not issued until an LP release from the 70s! The material originally was broadcast on radio, but through the series of the Rose transcription disc archive – which meant better recording and preservation than most other radio material of the bop years – helping to make this album a real treasure among Bird fans in the years after his death.
Ellis recorded Music from Other Galaxies and Planets (1977) after returning from a hiatus caused by a severe heart condition. With this new ensemble – appropriately named “Survival” – Ellis covers very little new musical territory on the release, which has become maligned by many Ellis fans. However, according to Hank Levy, the album is the result of hasty decisions made by Ellis’s new label Atlantic Records.

The Kingstonians' only album, Sufferer, was originally released on LP in 1970. Produced by Derrick Harriott, it remains a marvelous example of the Jamaican vocal trio's approach to rocksteady and early roots reggae. Harriott and Kingstonians leader Jackie Bernard co-wrote most of the songs on the album, with two of them, "Singer Man" and the bubbly (but melancholy) "Sufferer," becoming sizeable hits in Jamaica. Fans of reggae vocal trios will love this reissue from Attack Records, and while the Kingstonians broke up almost immediately after its original release, the album and its key track, "Sufferer," have had an impact that far outweighs the brief life span of the group.
