This disc, originally released on Cj Records in 1971 and only now emerging on CD due to the strenuous efforts of Chicago's AtavisticRecords, is a true sonic landmark, and deserves a much wider audience than it ever could have gained in the pre-digital era.
As such, it is probably the least satisfying of the three selections, but as it is half the length of the others, and given the power and fury and genius of the album as a whole, it is a small fault.
This is a record which few would have heard of were it not for the efforts of AtavisticRecords, and specifically Chicago-area writer John Corbett (the curator of the Unheard Music series, which will include three more releases by McPhee before year's end).
