JOE HARRIOTT - SOUTHERN HORIZONS






















WOW.....Heads up everyone.
Jazz-Neko contributes to the superb CALL IT ANYTHING blog and he has just posted a nice rip of the original vinyl of Joe Harriott's fantastic and very rare "Southern Horizons".This has never appeared anywhere else on the net(to the best of my knowledge)and it's a real treat.
Coincidentally I have just finished reading "Joe Harriott: Fire In His Soul" by Alan Robertson and highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in Jazz.A fascinating read on this neglected genius and the evolution of British Jazz in the 50s and 60s.

hi bacoso
been to the other place and almost collapsed...but what with those flac files? what'is the trick to convert them to mp3?
cheers

thebeatunters,

all you have do is to choose any one of a number of audio converter softwares - there are a million different. as i am not too tekkie, i will hope someone else will suggest a preferred one. anyhow, flac can be played in itunes but not windows media player.

bacoso, thank you kindly for the props, although you deserve the credit becuase you asked me about "southern horizons" and reminded me that i had it!! cheers for all of your musical knowledge and referrals, you are the best!

hope all of you enjoy . . .

Why are there four separate rar links to download? The entire album is on the first download. I downloaded all four and it seems like a massive waste of time. Any ideas?

bacoso said...

kreilly-the 4 files are linked together and when you unpack the first the other 3 unpack with it-if you dont dload 4 files you dont get the whole lp.So you did not waste your time !

Kreilly said...

Thanks for clearing that up! The music is great.

Hello. Are you going to repost this recording? I have been trying to find this and I have not been successful locating it.
