Heath Brothers - Marchin' On! SOLD

Strata East

Classic spiritual jazz lp on Strata East composed by the Heath Brothers!
Early second press from the 70's with the blue label. Hard box cover.
Of course the amazing B side with the infamous fourth parts "Smilin' Billy Suite". For those who don't already know this masterpiece, peep the long sound clip below. I've recorded the first part with the long intro to get a good idea of the condition as the intro is very quiet and of course the amazing second part with its drum break to die for and last but not least the fourth part in a more jazz funk way. Listen also to the great "Maimoun" from "Ilusion Suite".
Record has some light marks, plays really excellent, no noises or clicks, seam split (9cm) on the top edge from the open edge.
