Description

Previously Japan-only 7" featuring two tracks originally released on Shepp's 1972 classic soul-jazz LP, 'Attica Blues'. Official Mr Bongo reissue. Licensed courtesy of Universal Music Group Limited.

A powerful mix of psychedelic soul & jazz that retains Shepp's political sentiment of his earlier works. 'Attic Blues' is a huge funk-soul composition, referring to a mass shooting of inmates at Attica Prison. Henry Hull's vocal sits on top of bass, layered percussion, wah-wah guitars, plus large horn and string sections to create a massive sound.

The big band, almost soundtrack-esque, 'Quiet Dawn', is sung by the composer's 7-year old daughter. She floats on top of piano, strings, drums and rich layers of percussion.
