Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As it is sometimes difficult to find the Science Fiction and Broken Shadows albums on either vinyl or as a CD, it is nice to have this double CD which contains both. CD1 has the eight tunes from the LP in the original order, plus four additional tracks. Two of those are recordings that are on the original Broken Shadows LP, one is an alternative take on Street Woman, and the final one is a different mix of Civilisation Day. CD2 contains the tracks from Broken Shadows, minus School Work and Country Town Blues, which are on CD1 as bonus tracks. CD2 also has a bonus track, previously unreleased.

Science Fiction has always been my favourite Ornette Coleman album, and this release does not disappoint; the sound is fine and in line with the vinyl release. That there is some fantastic playing goes without saying; many of the musicians had played together for a long time when this was recorded. Varied and stimulating, the tunes sound as fresh as when the album came out in 1972. CD2 is also great - four of the tunes were recorded at the same session as the Science Fiction - sharing with CD1 the range from beautiful to excitingly complex.

The main players with Ornette are Charlie Haden on bass, Ed Blackwell and Billy Higgins on drums, Don Cherry and Bobby Bradford on trumpet, and Dewey Redman on tenor sax.

Buy with confidence.
