5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime madness, 20 Aug. 2003
This review is from: Rip, Rig And Panic / Now Please Don't You Cry, Beautiful Edith (Audio CD)
Many people focus on the fact that Rashaan Roland Kirk played many instruments and often all at the same time. Yeah, that IS pretty amazing, but the really amazing thing is that despite this tomfoolery the man could produce some of the most beautiful, haunting, soulful, funky, explosive music I have ever heard.
This is a great album - in so many ways, great music, great lineup (Elvin Jones on drums!) and two albums in one!. Usually it takes me time to get into something new, and I know that taking that time means that it will stay with me for a long time. Not so with Roland Kirk, I loved it straight off and I know I will keep hunting down the hard to find records for a long time to come.
Standout tracks include Mystical Dreams, the eponymous Rip Rig and Panic, Black Diamonds, Alfie (yes the Cilla Black number....) Silverisation and Now Please dont you cry Beautiful Edith. All different in their own way, but wonderful. Do yourself a favour and get into Rashaan's music and whenever someone asks you what your favourite Roland Kirk tune is just tell them - 'the one I'm listening to now', 'cos they are all knockouts.
