"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Interesting label bio for ESP, home of that esperanto record and some sides by Mr. Alyler et al, here:espdisk.com...

Thx Sem ; what a catalog & what a story.
  Wed. 4/22/15 6:41am Mark:

I also read somewhere that none of the ESP artists were ever paid anything.
Avatar Wed. 4/22/15 6:48am John Allen:

mark, that is the overgeneralization has made it into many books. some artists got paid royalties/ some didnt. Advances were probably all paid...free jazz books weren't really able to be audited
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/22/15 6:52am AndrewC.:

We are doing an ESP / Stollman tribute?
  Wed. 4/22/15 6:52am Mark:

That's good to know. I love the albums they released, that's for sure. This Marion Brown one is one of my favorites.
  Wed. 4/22/15 6:54am Mark:

Believe it or not, I was just listening to this Marion Brown one on Monday at home.
