interlude: bull by the horns

Sandy Bull:
January 1st, 1941 - April 11th, 2001.

After hearing New Yorker, Sandy Bull for the first time over on Art Decade in April last year, I decided to use his unique take on exploratory fusion to illustrate one of the first ever posts here on SibLINGSHOT ON THE BLEACHERS.

The following cut, from Sandy's second LP release for Vanguard in 1964 wings it's way directly from Any Major Dude With Half A Heart, who was good enough to bestow "A Major Dude Award" on this blog in the countdown to 2009.

Thanks, dude. Chuck Berry has seldom sounded so good.

Even when laid straight down the line by Charles Edward Anderson.

Sandy Bull: acoustic and electric guitar; banjo; oud; bass.
Billy Higgins: drums.

Produced by Sandy Bull and Maynard Solomon.

SANDY BULL: MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE from "Inventions" LP (Vanguard) 1964 (US)
