  1. Archie Shepp ‎– Further Fire Music (1965) {2LP - Impulse! ‎– IA-93572}:

  2. Never hear this album. Many thanks, Uri!

  3. Thanks Uri, alwais something good!

  4. Merci beaucoup. Never heard about this album ! Great.

  5. I just checked and it appears that it's a comp coming from two albums :
    the fantastic New things at Newport with one side from Trane and one from Shepp and a part of On this Night, both of them from 65.

    1. Yes that's right, originally side A and D were unreleased tracks, but they were later on released on CD as bonus tracks.

  6. For some reason I was thinking about this album a few days ago and once again, Uri reads my mind! Haven't heard this in many years but I remember it being very very fine. Many thanks.

  7. thank you for sharing this. -a.v.

  8. I've got this vinyl set but, alas, my turntable died many years ago. It will be great to listen to it again. Many thanks!


  9. Thank you for uploading this record! Greetings from Greece!
