Archie Shepp Coral Rock (LP) (1970, America Records) "The moment I heard the strung out moans from Shepp's belly I was ecstatic. Bought it for $5 without a cover on the spot. Swirly drugged out free jazz by some of the best at it. The title track is a mammoth bitch you love. " - Modo
Lubomyr Melnyk The Song of Galadriel (1984, Bandura)
"Just bought this record and it floored me. Brilliant solo piano, and apparently one of the fastest players in the world. I passed up an opportunity to see him some months ago and am doing some heavy regretting now." - DD
"It's a shame there is literally no information out there on Wayne, aside from the fact that he's on SITKZ Vol.2. If you can let yourself enjoy something like this, I find it one of the most exceptionally fluid and lucid outsider records of all time! And if Prea's Song doesn't make you want to cry, yr a stone." - DD
Jerry Solomon Past the 20th Century (LP) (1971, Fountain Records) "Outsider music at its finest. Sometimes reminds me of an unprivileged and musically inept Brian Wilson crossed with Thanksgiving, Iggy Pop and Sand. Alienating sounds for the struggling bunch." - Modo
Arjune Popo Dance with Arjune Popo (LP) (1984, Private Press) Firstly, thanks to the Old Junk or Treasure? blog for the original post.
"Like the title suggests, dance you will with Arjune Popo. Catchy and sincere disco/funk-lite brilliance. Unfortunately, there is very little information on this gentle magician. Where are you Arjune Popo? Play at my wedding?" - Modo
