Usually I share your enthusiasm for Albums we know both, but in this case I´m not so pleased with this record. The bass is barely audible and it´s a date from 1970 with a quite tired Mingus, the band is great but what misses is the cutting Edge of Mingus himself, his strong bass and his former fantastic bass solos. 

I have this record, it´s written it´s from 1969 in Amsterdam but I believe it was in 1970 since in 69 Mingus still was not touring , at least that´s what I believe. 

I´ve heard much better versions of "Orange" like on the 1964 tour......

Sorry to say this, but it´s not among my favourite Mingus Albums, I spinned it once, twice and that was it......

Get your point, nevertheless the late 60`'s/early 70`s Mingus Band was outstanding and until today being rather underappreciated .... Mingus was getting tired as soloist, but not as leader ....

Thank you. How About the two America LPs from 1970 Blue Bird and Pyticantropus Erectus ? They are also underappreciated but I think they are quite fine and as you say, the band is great. Maybe the trumpet Player is not my first choice, but Charles McPherson, Bobby Jones, Jakie Byard and Dannie is great.

The reason why I have posted the Mingus LP "Statements" was Bobby Jones after I have posted his "Hill Country Suite" and "The Arrival". I wanted to hear him with Mingus!

those America LPs are better than Statements, in my opinion. I have Statements on Joker; Japanese pressing. Jones was something else, really love the Enja in particular.

probably came out in the early 70s; that's the version I have as well.

BTW, did 'Orgasm' actually come out in the US in 1969? The liners on Parabolic state that it (the UK release) was the first release anywhere, but I have no idea what year it was released. It does really look like a 70s cover design.

I think Chuck bought it when it came out in the US in 1969.

I've certainly seen enough US copies that would indicate its proper release at the time.

I have a copy of the US original which was released in early 1969. However, all US copies I've ever seen were promo's and/or had a cut-out hole in the cover. I think it was withdrawn by Verve before its official release.

The UK and the Japanese reissue, both marketed by Polydor, were released in late 1973.

Thanks for the information!

That makes sense as far as it being straight to cut-out, most of the copies I've seen have had bb holes or promo indentations in the sleeve as well.

I like it a lot. Billy playing tightly as part of an ensemble along with Luther Thomas and Frank Lowe.

The horns are fairly dominant so it is a little different to some of the other Billy Bang records I have heard like Vietnam or Outline, where the violin is more prominent as a lead.

Interesting, thanks.  It's such a strong line up of musicians I couldn't see it not delivering

New arrival. The music is a lot better than the cover image...the Variations have nothing to do with the estimable Henry as it is.
