People Band on Emanem CDs


PEOPLE BAND (1968) EMANEM 4102

An expanded reissue of the only published recording by one of the pioneering free improvisation groups. The People Band took a much more 'anything goes' approach than their contemporaries, so they covered a lot of ground from chamber-esque music and free jazz to free improvisation and conductions. Featuring Mel Davis, Terry Day, Lyn Dobson, Eddie Edem, Tony Edwards, Mike Figgis, Frank Flowers, Russell Hardy, Terry Holman & George Khan. Reissue of Transatlantic TRA 214 with extra material. 54 minutes.

Special price GBP 10.00
