A cult has grown around Larry Coryell's first two albums, of which Lady is the first. Known for his virtuoso jazz fusion guitar playing, he has never sung again on a record. Sheer tragedy, believe me.

Few moments can match the sensation of the world screeching to a halt upon listening to something so powerful. It doesn't happen often, but it came full force with Lady Coryell. I've had this for two decades and still can't get enough. The impossible blend of hard acid blues, pointilist jazz, and heavy rock -- together with touches of delicate classical and even lilting country rythms -- are forever fresh. And that's not to mention the VOCALS. Oh my, those VOCALS. Shoot the man who told Larry to shut it. The torn, ragged, blatantly unschooled, and intimate singing is as effective as Larry's masterful handling of the axe. Listen to "Herman Wright" and try to stay standing -- it's so unassuming and unaffected you'll think all music should be this magical and real.

The follow-up, Coryell, is also brilliant, but 'the Lady' takes the prize. No wonder Larry was seen as Jimi's most serious contender at the time. Strangely, however, Coryell would appear to be dismissive of these two records as songs from them have never been visited on any of his live albums. Stylistically, they're miles away from the technique-driven cerebral free jazz he quickly branched out into, which hardly ever touched on anything remotely close to the spectacular, downright glorious worlds of Lady and the follow-up. To the detriment of Larry's career, too, if you ask me.

So, beam yourself up to a time when music became Technicolor, became everything we would want today: irreverent yet cultured, insanely technical yet unbound, transgressive yet sublime. Zero pose. Full imagination. Be transported.

As for the record company, go and give us the deluxe edition please. And then dig up a live one. Go on.

Arrived on time and in perfect condition. Now I can listen to it without the cracks and pops that spoil my 40 year old vinyl copy!
