Horace Silver – Total Response / 1972

Label: Blue Note
Orig. Released:
Catalog No.: LPBNOT84368

Funky work by Horace Silver – with a spiritual and political edge! Volume 2 (or “Phase 2”) in Horace’s United States Of Mind series has politically-oriented and self-reflective vocals by Andy Bey and his sister Salome – with lots of trippier elements, and a sinister soul & funk groove! Horace plays electric piano, and the band includes Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet & fluegelhorn, Harold Vick on tenor sax, and Bob Cranshaw on bass, Richie Resnicoff on guitar and Mickey Roker on drums. The titles probably give more information about the tracks than we ever could, and include “Acid, Pot, Or Pills”, “Soul Searchin”, “What Kind Of Animal Am I” (which amazingly blends gospel, funk and honky tonk) , “I’ve Had A Little Talk” and “Big Business”

Acid, Pot or Pills
