Harry Miller - London 1976

This isn't of great quality, but hey, you don't get a Harry Miller live recording every day, do you? So stop complainin' and dig the beautiful sounds of Harry Miller, Louis Moholo and their British cohorts, including the late great Mike Osborne and Keith Tippett!

The rhythm trio can be heard backing Elton Dean here.
Moholo & Tippett's recent Sant'Anna Arresi concert with the MinAfric Orchestra can be found here.
A great recording of Louis Moholo's Italian band of recent years is here.
And finally, Miller, Moholo, Charig, Griffiths and Osborne all were part of Chris McGregor's Brotherhood of Breath when this show was recorded.

An MP3 version of this show is available over on inconstant sol.

Miller/Osborne /Moholo are always good for some fireworks ...

I've posted this one before, and my suggestions for titles of tracks 2 and 3 are here. Lovely music, though the sound is undeniably on the rough side.

ubu said...

Oh, I had no idea you've posted this before!

Folks, if you prefer an MP3 version, check out the link posted by kinbalu!

Ah, I thought this one looked familiar...

And Ubu, any chance of reseeding the unreleased part of your last Harry Miller set that was pulled due the Reel Recordings content (great CD btw)? I 've been dying to hear more from that session feat. Berni Holland since you teased us with some of it on your South African Blindfold Test discs.

Cheers for now!
