From a previous post featuring Sandy, the first - proper - which kicked off this blog:

"By the time of his fourth release in 1972, the last cut for Vanguard, Sandy was already deep in the grip of a heroin habit and the industry suits were at a loss as to how best market him. Cast adrift without a label to support his talent, this pioneer of fusion struggled through the next decade just to reach an audience.

This album, as per virtually all Bull recorded, has a fragile crystal clarity.

SANDY BULL: EASY DOES IT from "Demolition Derby" LP (Vanguard) 1972 (US)

I'd like to thank a couple of people for comments of support on a post I pulled from yesterday. The darkness was getting to me.

Nate. Thanks brother, I would if I could.

Löst Jimmy. Thank you for being so open. Like the saying goes, some days are better than others. I need to stay away from the alcohol.

Thanks for this one, ib. I've personally yet to explore The Bull's career post-Inventions/Fantasias.

Sandy sounds like he'd recently returned from a day's jaunt to Marakkesh (sp?) on this one.
