Arthur Doyle Alabama Feeling - 1st US vinyl LP album (LP record)
Tracklisting / Additional Info: Here is the work of a [mad]man that famously turned down the opportunity to work with Sun Ra & His Arkestra, possibly because they weren't out-there enough, we don't know! That should tell you a little something about what to expect from this extremely ferocious recording...

Alabama Feeling, Arthur Doyle's debut, is full of shamanistic saxophone screaming, guttural roars, darn right snarling angst (Alabama in the title alludes to Arthur's birthplace) & aggressive freedom flights. Placed highly on Thurston Moore's Top Ten Free Jazz Underground list, the album has a stronger Punk aesthetic than anything relating to Jazz. Its lo-fi sound quality was in keeping with the underground "No Wave" scene & ethos in New York of the late seventies, early eighties. Free-Jazz guitarist, Rudolf Grey was in the audience on the night of this intense recording & he created a group with Arthur Doyle shortly thereafter; both were a big inspiration on a pre-Sonic Youth, Thurston Moore, who went a long way to try & bring Arthur Doyle's work back to light.

Privately pressed in a small run of just 1,000 copies on the tiny AK-Ba Records imprint, the labels are the original light grey & silver design & the run-outs or 'dead wax' area have etchings made by hand, reading 'AK-1030-A/ AK-1030-B'.

This was one of the few copies of this record to make its way to the UK. It was bought during the time of release & we obtained it recently as part of one particular collector's large extensive Free Jazz collection here in Britain, with many LPs coming from the historic Mole Jazz record shop, specifically their Frank East Dulwich Market trade, or as exotic imports by mail order.
The record has been stored away safely in a correct upright manner for decades. As was common practice in this country, this particular US pressed picture sleeve has its edges tape reinforced to avoid seam splits. This was done some time in the past by its original owner. The tape remains intact & in a neat fashion around the edges, yellowing with age somewhat over the decades.
We would grade the sleeve VG+. The panels remain exceptionally clean & are still a fantastic off white, with no writing or creasing. There is a small white sticker in the top right corner, unobtrusive to the print, which fades into the white surround & we have left it there untouched. All text is clearly legible, including along the spine.
The vinyl is a strong Excellent & appears to have been barely touched or played in its life. Strictly for the most hardcore collector only...
