Lonnie Smith : THINK!

Lonnie Smith : THINK!
Blue Note 1968

Nothing to private press here, but this has been driving me crazy recently. 2, very heavy tracks, Son of Ice bag and the killer, The Call of the Wild which contains some of fiercest percussion out there. Just the ticket for Christmas morning hang- overs and hang- ups. 

Henry Pucho Brown on Drums, Willie Bivins and Norberto Appellaniz on congas and percussion lift these tracks to another level. Pretty damn wild for BN ...
