Another vote for Journey To The One.

Yes, it's MY favourite album by him too.

The 1981 live album with John Hicks is really great.

Another live album from that period : "Heart is a Melody", with a rare version of Tadd Damerons "On a Misty Night".

You mentioned "Love is Everywhere". I also like that very much. The title melody got that peaceful mood that I first found in "Healing Song" from "At The East".

Here's a previous thread on Pharaoh:

Some useful comments, and even a rating system!

Yeah, I love that rating system. Sorry for starting the new thread - I just wanted to ask about this specific reissue :)

besides the title track, the thembi album is one of the worst pharoah early 70's releases. you'd be better off getting just about anything else by him from this time period.

Astral Traveling is da bomb.

When I was in college in the mid-70's, Lonnie Liston Smith was very popular; truly a crossover artist.

I like that album, it´s really a nice thing. I also like the percussion stuff on it very very much.

But I think it´s not as great as Karma or "Live at the East", the latter one was the first Pharoah Sanders album I got, shortly after it was in the stores, and anyway one of my first albums, when I was still a kid....

I still have it, and thought I´d like Mr. Sanders to sign it for me, but I was a bit afraid so I didn´t ask him, especially after I heard that he is not pleased with the stuff he did earlier. ...

He signed my copy of Tauhid when he played London about a decade ago. He was very sweet about it (possibly helped that my girlfriend gave him a kiss on the cheek).

Thembi is cool but the pieces are too damn short. I assume they are edited. Pharoah and company usually need some stretching room.

this is one tune split into 2 parts

- Morning Prayer

- Bailophone Dance

When I did a weekly jazz radio show at college in the mid-70's, I named it "Expansions" and used Smith's "Expansions" and Charles Earland's "Leaving This Planet" as my theme songs.
