Garry Todd & Roger Turner: Sunday Best (Incus 32, 1979)
I like Turners drumming a lot, so I've been looking for this (his first recording) for some time, and finally got it last week. This turned out to be a curious little record, not highly original, reminding me a lot of other British improv acts, not entirely essential either, but still a very nice and intimate feeling set, and it does warrant repeated hearings. So get it here, and enjoy.

A rare case, rather unknown players, but some nice music. Released on their own short lived label, London Musicians Collective Records (LMC2). The first release on this label was Roger Smith's first solo album, Spanish Guitar, now reissued on Emanem. This is the second (or actually the first?), and last, release on the label.
Here are the players and tunes:
A1 - Sinan Savaskan, Graham Bradshaw & Graham Tattersall - untitled
A2 - PIPE Percussion Duo (Tim Dennis & Dick Beard) - untitled
B1 - London Musicians Collective - heuristic music
B2 - London Musicians Collective - heuristic music
B3 - Stuart Boardman, Dave Draper & Michael Williams - untitled
B4 - Stuart Boardman, Dave Draper & Michael Williams - untitled
Get it here and enjoy, and do please comment as well.
