2nd Crusade
New - LP - BTS 7000
Sealed 1972 2LP Gatefold Original With "Don't Let It Get You Down" Hype Sticker On The Shrink Wrap. “Given The Critical And Commercial Success Of 1 And Their Rebirth As The "Crusaders," The Band Decided To Follow Up The Previous LP's Double Length With Another One! There Are 13 Tunes Here, All Extrapolating The Band's Previously Held Notions Of Soul-Jazz And Hard Bop As They Emerged Into The New Funky '70s. Textures Were A Little Different This Time Out As Keyboardist Joe Sample Expanded His Palette To Include Not Only The Fender Rhodes But Also His First (Subtle) Forays Into Synthesizer, While Wayne Henderson And Wilton Felder Keep The Crisp Horn Charts Popping Throughout. Stix Hooper Was, At The Time, The Best Soul-Jazz Drummer In The Business With The Possible Exception Of Idris Muhammad. The Newly Acquired, Three-Piece Guitar Choir Led By Larry Carlton Is Everywhere In Evidence Here, But The Real Change Is In The Place Of The Bass In This Mix. Chuck Rainey, Who Lent His Fat Warm Electric Bass Tone To The Previous Outing, Has Been Replaced By Felder's Crisper, More Rhythmic Approach To The Instrument………..The Two Longest Cuts On The Set Are By Sample And Serve As The Hinges Of The Album Coming As They Do In The Middle. "A Message From The Inner City" And "A Search For Soul" Are Both Searching Tunes That Rely On Lean, Mean Backbeats And Breaks And Both Mess About With Dynamic Tension In Unique Ways. While The Former Tune Is Nearly Pastoral In Its Tentative Creation Of The Groove, The Latter Stutters And Stars And Moves Off-Kilter Into A Fluid Whole. And While It's True That No Single Track Stands Out As Much As The Band's Read Of Carole King's "So Far Away" On 1, 2nd Crusade Is Just As Consistent And Enduring As Its Predecessor And May Be More Suited To The Dancefloor. But Make No Mistake: This Is A Jazz Record With Greasy Funk At Its Core, Not A Jazzy Funk Record.” Thom Jurek, AMG. more

Features "Trance Dance," "A Summer Madness," "Young Rabbits" And "Freedom Sound." “Ken Cox's "Trance Dance" That Opens The Set Showcases All Of The Band's Strengths: Solid Hard Bop Chops And Arrangements With A Deep Accent On The Blues As It Was Emerging Into Soul-Jazz. Soloists Joe Sample, Wayne Henderson, And Wilton Felder Are All In Fine Form Here. The Deep Groove On "Summer's Madness" By The Trio Is Actually The Signature Piece Of The Jazz Crusaders' Sound At The Time. Sample's "Freedom Sound," From The Pacific Jazz Gig, Illustrates The Deep Lyricism At The Heart Of The Band's Front Line.” Thom Jurek, AMG. more

New - LP - VIM 5555-6
New, Unplayed Japanese 2LP Gatefold With Obi. “The Follow-Up To 1973's Unsung Heroes Was The First Of The Group's Blue Thumb Efforts To Be Distributed By ABC Records. The Label Switch Also Coincided With The Inclusion Of Lyrical Guitarist Larry Carlton As A Full-Fledged Member. Although Much Of Southern Comfort Puts A Gloss On Ideas Made Definitive On Earlier Efforts, The Complaints Are Minimal And This Remains The Most Appealing, Multi-Faceted Incarnation Of The Band. The First Track, "Stomp And Buck Dance," Is An Offhanded And Skilled Approach To The Group's Patently Earthy Style. The Insistent "The Well's Gone Dry" Has The Edginess Of Some Of The Better Tracks On Unsung Heroes, And Has Carlton Doing Great Work On The Bridge. Not Surprisingly, It Is Carlton's Presence Here That Adjusts The Band Chemistry And Makes The Best Of Southern Comfort Even More So. The Best Track Here, The Poignant "When There's Love Around," Has Carlton's Guitar Attaining The Perfect Sense Of Longing That Meshes Well With Joe Sample's Trademark Fender Rhodes Tones. The Last Tracks Here Are Also In A Thoughtful Ballad Vein: "Lilies Of The Nile" Has Great Horn Work From Wilton Felder And Wayne Henderson, And The Last Track, "A Ballad For Joe (Louis)," Is A Heartfelt Rumination On The Death Of The Famed Boxer, Featuring Sample's Inherent Sense Of Melody. A Good Representation Of The Crusaders' Tasteful And Intelligent Playing, Southern Comfort Is More Than Recommended To Their Fans.” Jason Elias, AMG. more

Their Recordings Of The Next Few Years Would Decline In Interest Until The Band Gradually Faded Away In The '80s. However This Particular Set Is Well Worth Picking Up For The 11-Minute Title Cut And There Is Good Playing By The Three Original Members (Wilton Felder On Tenor, Soprano And Electric Bass, Keyboardist Joe Sample And Drummer Stix Hooper) Along With Guitarist Barry Finnerty; Horn And String Sections, Plus Additional Guitarists Are Utilized On Sample's Commercial But Listenable Arrangements.” Scott Yanow, AMG. more
