I suppose descriptors such as “scarce” and “rare” are pretty subjective in 2012, and for most of us, bar the most hardcore of collector-masochists, that is a good thing. But there was a time, and not so long ago, I remember looking high and low for a decent copy of this record, Max Roach With The J.C. White Singers’ Lift Every Voice And Sing, from 1971. It’s since been reissued both digitally and on vinyl, so do dig in. I kicked off this week’s Sidecar: Transmissions podcast with its lead track; one of the more haunting versions of “Motherless Child” ever committed to tape.
