Shamek Farrah is a name that's completely new to me. 

I'm listening to this music now via YT. Interesting. Thanks for the heads-up, Pim. :tup

It’s a nice record 👍 I only know Sonelius Smith on this record and he is great here. But bassist Milton Suggs (unknown to me) is also playing very strong. Pure Pleasure’s reissue is one hell of a remaster. Spotless sound. And Strata wasn’t exactly known for good sound quality...

Milton Suggs is the father of a popular jazz singer by the same name. Both Farrah LPs on Strata-East are really good. I haven't heard the one on RA (drummer Ron Rashaan's label).

I knew Milton in Chicago. Fine musician and nice guy. I forgot he is gone.

Not an OG, some Scorpio-WG/NRP pressing of less than perfect vinility. But good enough.

Note (fwiw) the presence of Emil Richards (RIP). And also Gary Coleman (not the actor), a name familiar if you read credits on a buttload full of LA pop records from back in the day.

This music was once deemed "exotic", "difficult", "eccentric", etc. Here in 2019 (almost 2020), it sounds so...normal. And beautiful!

 

That is contained in this Sony CD set:

and that set includes the instrument demonstrations from the Delusion of the Fury lp box. Delusion of the Fury can be heard without the clicks and pops on

The only place that I've seen Milton Suggs' name before was on Mary Lou Williams' Zoning.

chewy,

I have no idea why they remastered the music, but I'd always assumed that the later repressing with different covers were just cost-saving efforts on the part of the record label.  The early CTI pressings all had gatefold covers with super-thick cardboard sleeves.  Subsequent repressings/reissues didn't have gatefold covers and the cardstock for the covers was no heavier than standard releases.

As I said though, the cost-savings thing is just an assumption on my part.

Yeah, this is an "essential" set (musically as well as thematically), and has yet to be satisfactorily replicated digitally, afaik,

Hard to understand why this hasn’t been digitally released.

Well, all the albums have, and that's probably what "they" wanted. But this focused collation of just trio tracks,,,I think it's a really good way to hear certain things about Horace as both player and composer that aren't always to the forefront of the band recordings.

Just my opinion, though. "They" don't ask me what I think.  :g

Such wonderful, life-affirming music.  A desert-island LP.

But it was released on CD, only I´m not sure if there´s also a RVG edition of it. 

I have this with the original cover: 

And the same cover photo/design is on the next BN Album "Horace Silver with Jazz Messengers", the one with "The Preacher" on it...….

I think I have all Horace Silver albums from the 50´s in cronological order but somehow actually I´m listening to other stuff.

Just saying - the "trio sides only" concept of the old 2-fer has not been released digitally. That set included all trio material that Horace did for BN, across his run at the label. It spanned the years 1952-1968.

Does anyone else have a misspress "bird is free" on charlieparker records where you have a front coverslick the stereopact 401-S with a rear slick 401 no "S' and a mono 401 no "S" lp inside?
