"Classic reissue of this 1974 private press album!" - FE. "Theres not another record on the planet that sounds even remotely like vibraphonist Khan Jamals eccentric, one-of-a-kind masterpiece, Drumdance to the Motherland. In its improbable fusion of free jazz expressionism, Black psychedelia, & full-on dub-like production techniques, Drumdance remains a bracingly powerful outsider statement thirty-four years after it was recorded live at the Catacombs Club in Philadelphia in 1972. Comparisons to Sun Ra, King Tubby, Phil Cohran & BYG/Actuel merely hint at the cosmic otherness conjured by the band & by recording engineer Mario Falanas real-time enhancements. The first edition of three hundred copies, issued by Jamal in 1973 on the local Philadelphia label Dogtown, was barely distributed outside the citys limits. Since then Drumdance has assumed a mythic status among the very few aficionados, eBay mutants, & heads who know of it at all. Hallelujah that it can finally be heard outside their murky inner-sanctums!" - Eremite. Highly recommended!
