It's so cool when you can find a picture that is from the actual recording date (one of two for this album).

Great. I remember when I first purchased it when I was very young, I didn´t know that "Nefertiti" is the title of the Wayne shorter composition. 

then, in 1978  I first thought  that  "Nerfertiti" might be  an Italian Name and perhaps some Italian film producer, so when I first saw the cover I thought this is possibly some movie score, like "Lift to the Scaffold" or later "Siesta".:D

queen from the old Egypt ... didn't realize until your post.... lol :tup

Great, especially "There´s No Business like Showbusiness", really up tempo, long theme, quite hard to play I must admit

Archie Shepp "For Losers" Impulse/Universal Japan SHM-CD 2021.

I'm enjoying reliving these Shepps in the new (great sounding) SHM-CDs from Japan. So much drama in the Shepp music of this era. I think Shepp would have made a great actor in progressive movies during this time. A missed opportunity!

I love the ALS pastiche that is "Un Croque Monsieur" . . . . 

Just look at the cast on these recordings!

Track 1

Archie Shepp - tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone
Leon Thomas - lead vocals
Martin Banks - trumpet, flugelhorn
Robin Kenyatta - alto saxophone, flute
Andrew Bey - piano
Bert Payne - guitar
Albert Winston - electric bass, bass
Tasha Thomas, Doris Troy - backing vocals
Beaver Harris - drums

Track 2

Archie Shepp - tenor saxophone
Jimmy Owens - trumpet
Grachan Moncur III - trombone
James Spaulding- alto saxophone
Charles Davis - baritone saxophone
Dave Burrell - organ
Wally Richardson - guitar
Bob Bushnell - electric bass
Bernard Purdie - drums


Tracks 3-5

Archie Shepp - tenor saxophone
Woody Shaw - trumpet
Matthew Gee - trombone
Cedar Walton - piano
Wilbur Ware - bass
Joe Chambers - drums
Clarence Sharpe - alto saxophone (3 and 5)
China-Lin Sharpe - vocals (3 and 5)
Cecil Payne - baritone saxophone, flute (4-5)

Probably my favorite Sheep record of them all (as much as any single one can be). It's a concept record, really, "who gives a damn for losers?" The voice of China-Lin Sharpe speaks to that theme both explicitly and implicitly, as does, to varying degrees, the personnel.

apparently this is far from a universally held opinion, but it is my opinion, and nothing has changed over the last 50-ish years to do anything but strengthen it.

Old folks too often have to repeat themselves, so apologies for this post.
