Affirmation - Identity Crisis. 1985 Rhombus

No reissues!

Much more edgy and interesting than their 1980 debut. There's almost a bit of "Kraut Fusion" here (think Real Ax Band), combined with the more obvious electric viola driven Jean-Luc Ponty styling. Rare that a jazz rock album from 1985 has any personality at all, much less surpassing one from a better era. Nice album here.

This is an album that Jeff will have in our next Purple Peak sale. It's an extra copy. I don't own it myself, and thought it made for a nice CDRWL item. Better than their more known debut Lost Angeles.
