Copeland Davis - Smouldering Secrets LP (Morning Spring) 1975
Kind of amazed that this LP isn't more readily available in the blog sphere, I see lots of uploads of the track 'Morning Spring' but that's it. Obviously that is the real highlight of the album but the rest is pretty solid too. Classic afro-funk spiritual jazz album that is sought after by many and rarely ever turns up. A few years ago someone tracked down the source and got a bunch of sealed copies, that's how a handful of copies got back onto the market and traded around, before it was near impossible to find and ran 500 bucks. Now all those are gone too and you see one pop up occasional for 200 bucks or so in really nice condition. This remains a perennial digger classic. I really do love that Morning Spring song, wow.
