John Coltrane & Alice Coltrane – Cosmic Music Album
A near mint copy of the rare album "Cosmic Music" by John & Alice Coltrane on the Coltrane Records label (this is the rarer version with the purple laminated cover.) In 1968, shortly after John Coltrane's death, his wife Alice issued this free jazz album on her own Coltrane Records label. It was very poorly distributed and sold very few copies, making this the rarest of Coltrane's albums. It features both Coltranes, as well as Jimmy Garrison, Pharoah Sanders, Rashied Ali, Ray Appleton and Ben Riley. John Coltrane is featured on two long cuts, while Alice leads the band without him on two shorter tracks. This is the much rarer version with the purple laminated cover (issued a few months after a version with an unlaminated, gray cover; virtually every copy of these had ring wear.) The cover here is in near mint condition, with just some extremely minor sun fading to the top edge and spine; the disc is in NM-/EX+ condition and plays great. A very scarce Coltrane classic.
