5.0 out of 5 stars Reunited 27 April 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I owned this album years ago when I live in Nigeria and it was one of the many items left behind when I relocated back to the UK. I thought it would be easy enough to replace the album. Unfortunately, I didn't remember the name of the album and for years I've had the tune of my favorite piece, 'Look Beyond The Hill' going round and round in my head for years. Then, one day my husband bought a compilation album of the Crusaders and their 'sound' reminded me of that tune. I did a search and there it was and I am thrilled to finally have this album back in my collection again.
Wonderful. Thanks Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best 21 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
Possessing 12 Crusaders CDs, one can reflect that they are really a fantastic jazz/funk/soul band. Possessing 12 albums is not about having OCD, but rather, a reflection of how good this band really is. The re-release of 2nd crusade is lifetime opportunity, with the previously issued CD or even vinyl fecthing some money. '1st Crusade, Southern Comfort, Chain Reaction, Those Southern Knights, Free as the Wind, Images' are all truly good albums. 2nd Crusade is their best, simply because the number of great tunes on this album outweigh the number found on other albums. That been said, it would be a mistake to think that their other album are not worthy of 5 stars too-they certainly are. Indeed, when a fellow vinyl junkie and I agreed to create our respective top 20 albums, I placed this particular crusaders' album in that list. This CD presently can be obtained rather cheaply, but I expect, fairly shortly that it will command high prices, as it has been out for at least a year already.

With so little good new music available in the 2010's, it is right that we re-appraise some of the greatest musicians that have been missed by the cloth eared music critics of the last 30 years or so.

As Crusaders fan since my late teens, I have been constantly frustrated by their apparent compartmentalisation as a bunch of studio sessioneers, or for their Pop-Jazz phase exemplified by Street Life. This band had so much more than this - and only now, with so little decent current music to compare; does it really show what a world class outfit they were, and what a brilliant vision of a blues/funk/jazz hybrid they introduced in the early 70's. Of course, only musicians with such gifts & calibre could deliver such a vision. And it is not an exaggeration to say that at this time (1970 - 78), they were probably the best set of groove musicians working anywhere.

When the band arrived in LA in the early 60's. they were known as the Jazz Crusaders, and were a jobbing Jazz & blues band that carved out a niche for themselves with good recordings; but without their star potential realised through a more commercial vision. At the end of the 60's, and with jazz in commercial disarray, they decided to drop the "jazz" moniker to find a more commercial ground as the Crusaders. They signed to BlueThumb/ABC and formulated themselves primarily as a groove band that could work in blues, jazz, pop and other R&B genres.

The results were extraordinary with the release of the first 2 double albums - Crusaders 1 and Secong Crusade. Of course, jazz crossover was now happening; but where Donald Byrd and Miles Davis were using the funk of James Brown and Sly Stone as their groove base - the Crusaders found a different blueprint from their Texas blues roots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent example of Crusaders' music 7 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I collect the music of the Jazz Crusaders/Crusaders. They are superb musicians. This is one of my favourite records (after Southern Comfort and At The Lighthouse). Highly recommended.
