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.
