Black Unity Trio – Al-Fatihah

Yesterday I got an email notification by Soundohm about a reissue of this obscure but great LP.  It is a bootleg! Unfortunately!

Soundohm seem to thrive on bootleg stock

Another one that will probably get thrown out by the HJ/PayPall firewall !

"In our excitement about this reissue, we leapt at getting copies from the distributor, but realized after the fact that we are not 100% certain of how authorized it is, and are unable to gain conformation. In this light, we offer it to our costumers with a light disclaimer to this end." (Soundohm)

On Discogs, this release has been blocked from sale.

Yeah and an official release is also announced in the comments.... so I would wait for that one.

yeah, waiting on the official reissue. Have had a couple chances to grab the original but never in ideal condition.

I'd buy a CD if it was legit.

Anyone who could tell some more about this recording? I don’t know it and don’t know the artists as well. It does sound interesting listening on YouTube.

The boys in the band introduce themselves in this edition of cricket

http://www.ayler.co.uk/html/cricket.html

it's the seventh page from the end under the headline "Gossip". "We, the Black Unity Trio welcome a free exchange of ideas and will assist you in any way possible." Otherwise, Cellist Abdul Wadud is by far the best known member of the band with an extensive discography...

Saxophonist Joe Phillips a/k/a Yusef Mumin was also in trumpeter Norman Howard's group, which cut a proposed LP for ESP that was later issued on cassette by Homeboy Music and then some of that came out on an ESP CD several years ago. Drummer Haasan Al-Hut has, to my knowledge, not appeared on anything else. It's a great, great record -- have had a CD-R of it for many years.

A second Black Unity Trio LP was recorded but remains unreleased. Not sure if the masters survived.

Thanks for the info guys! I Do know Abdul Wadud but did not know his birthname as mentioned on Discogs.

Just got an email saying that the official reissue date is going to be 27 November 2020. 

Apparently there's going to be a livestream over the Instagram tomorrow at 1pm Eastern, for anyone who's interested.

Funny - I was going to ask the same this morning.

I've heard nothing further from them, myself.

The livestream thing was delayed due to an issue with the tapes. Hopefully not something serious.
