Revolutionary, spiritual jazz from the unlikely city of Houston,
Texas: the definitive issue, mastered from the original tapes.
Bonus disc contains previously unreleased tracks.
Drummer, bandleader and activist Bubbha Thomas had toured America with R&B revues,
served as a session musician for Peacock and Back Beat Records, and played straight
ahead jazz with legends before the political and social upheaval of the late 1960s led him
to a path first charted by Coltrane. Energy Control Center, his third LP with his Lightmen
band is his masterpiece: deep-set, maverick jazz on part with the best Tribe and
Strata East titles. This is a highpoint amongst the best of the 1970s jazz underground,
a collective voice of resistance to the musical and cultural status quo.
Contains second disc with bonus tracks: unreleased alternate takes, including two
versions of the spiritual jazz classic “All Praises To Allah”, all housed with an extensive
booklet with photos and liner notes.
