Sealed 1972 Original With Custom Lyric Insert. Custom "Thunder And Lightning" Smash Hit Hype Sticker On Shrink. “It's Clear From The Opening Moments Of Chi Coltrane's Self-Titled Debut That She's A Singer/Songwriter A Few Musical Cuts Above The Rest. Primarily, This Is Down To Her Piano-Playing. Where Even The Most Respected Artists Of The Genre Could Only Play Basic Block Chords Or Arpeggios (Laura Nyro And Joni Mitchell, Respectively), Coltrane Is A Player's Player, And An Equal Of Any Session Musician. The Eleven Songs On Chi Coltrane Give Her Ample Opportunity To Show Off. "Thunder And Lightning" (An Absolute White Soul Gem) Was Her First Single, And A Top 20 Hit, But It Tells Only A Fraction Of The Story. The Rest Of The Album Displays A Complete Mastery And Understanding Of Gospel ("Go Like Elijah"), As Well Music Of Both The Classical And Romantic Periods ("The Wheel Of Life"), And In Addition, She Comes Up With A Few Hybrids Of Her Own ("You Were My Friend"). Her Vocals, Alternatively Tender, Spirited, Angry, And With A Wonderful "On-The-Verge-Of-Tears" Quality, Are At Odds With The Dreamy Inertia Of Most Mid-70s Performers. They Invest Every Cut With A Compelling Sense Of Drama And Anxiety. Her Lyrics Are Clear-Headed, Unpretentious And Direct. For Subject Matter, She Draws Mainly On Love, Friendship, Religion (Tentatively), And Philosophy. Although Much Press Attention Focused On Her Glacial, Blonde Good Looks (Think A Less Scary, Pre-Heroin Nico), This Album Was A Triumph Of Style And Substance In Equal Measure.” Charles Donovan, AMG.... more details
