Head Hunters is the twelfth studio album by the American pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, released October 13, 1973, on Columbia Records. Recording sessions for the album took place in the evening at Wally Heider Studios and Different Fur Trading Co. in San Francisco, California. Head Hunters is a key release in Hancock's career and a defining moment in the genre of jazz

Head Hunters was a pivotal point in Herbie Hancock's career, bringing him into the vanguard of jazz fusion. Hancock had pushed avant-garde boundaries on his own albums and with Miles Davis, but he had never devoted himself to the groove as he did on Head Hunters.

Herbie and the management team are here to keep you up to date on everything important in the World of Herbie Hancock. Looking back on Herbie’s twelfth album, Head Hunters, which was released on this day in 1973. Recorded at Wally Heider Studios and Different Fur Trading Co. in San Francisco, the album went on to become one of Herbie’s best known records and represented a landmark moment in jazz history. The album was later added to the Library Of Congress’s National Recording Registry which collects "culturally, historically or aesthetically important" sound recordings from the 20th century.

Chameleon (15:44) Trust me on this one, you�ve heard this song before. Jazz bands around the world have covered this song. The unforgettable opening bass line will get in your head for hours, possibly even days

Album · 1973 · 4 Songs. While keyboardist Herbie Hancock had gone electric with Miles Davis, and in his outward-looking solo projects before Head Hunters, nothing he’d done previously packed such a deep funk groove. It's particularly evident on the rump-bumpin’ Chameleon, and there's more than a subtle nod to Sly Stone on "Sly. Head Hunters Herbie Hancock.

Herbie Hancock - Head Hunters (1973) gone were the days of progressive fusion for Herbie, instead we've got a inventive funk/jazz. Their was need for more commercial succes and so Herbie got to work with the Headhunter, who would later make their own funk albums. Head Hunters was the first album in which Herbie Hancock attempted to weld his jazz and neo-classical sensibilities to his sophisticated take on the popular funk beats of the time. It's not a bad album and has some great moments, but it's not as developed as his future funk/fusion masterpieces; Thrust and Man Child.

Nuadazius
The back cover on this CD is so great. The photo of course is from the original release. But there is something just spooky as hell about those track titles over the dark background with the ghostly pink image of the band.

Scoreboard Bleeding
The mastering sounds excellent and alive, but my copy is not the quietest record I've ever heard, especially for the price. There is some occasional noise, mainly ticks and pops, that did not go away after a run thru the spin clean. The noise is most prominent on the intro to Vein Melter.

Tori Texer
This really is it, my numero uno. The wonder just grows and grows. Still gives me shivers, still blows my mind. The groove, the breaks, changes, shifting funky jazz.

jorik
Nice sounding reissue. I don't hear any inner groove distortion.

Breder
The 2-disc 45 RPM pressing from 2017 blows this away.

Damand
Nearly 16 min at 45 RPM might be pushing it, but I'm sure it still sounds better than any 33 1/3 RPM pressings made of this LP.

Meztihn
Another fantastic-sounding MOV release. Yeah yeah, they're all pressed from digital files but honestly, I can't name any other label that churns out this level of consistency in terms of clean, well-pressed records.

Mr_Jeйson
Just one more gushing comment on how great this record sounds! Worth the price.

Nagor
I have the cd and the 24bit but the vinyl is incomparable. fantastic record.

Steel_Blade
I agree fantastic record...decades later it still sounds timeless, unique and funky as it gets. All 4 tracks are works of art but I especially love vein meltet. In my top 10 records forever 5/5

Frosha
Every disc page has a relative album to this disc. I know this one is a god like album.And I just get a 180gram RE for this. So cheap. What a gift for Lucky fast speed hands.

AfinaS
I bought this album on a whim somewhere at the end of the 70's (in 1973 I was definitely still too young), but I'm sure it was before I knew "Feets don't fail me now" (which I also bought later and the 12" (disco version) of "Tell everybody", it's also on "Feets don't fail me now" but in a completely different version, e.g. without the fantastic percussion). I actually don't remeber why I bought it, probably because I had heard some records of Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea and liked them very much. But all in all it was not a bad choice and moreover I still have the album (in playable condition of course)...... I never understood those people who got rid of their vinyl collection when CD's became "the norm" in buying music. And now lots of people are buying turntables and paying sometimes a lot of money for records they threw/gave away years ago. Anyway, vinyl rules IMHO and so does this album!

Hugighma
Great pressing, remastering is excellent, wish I'd bought it sooner.

Zamo
Amazing pressing, one of the best sounding in my collection for sure

Olwado
I take it, this just a repress of the 2015 AJP-084?

Vivados
This is a 2 album set cut at 45rpm. It may be from the same source though.

Fiarynara
Thanks for this, Yeah, I've just noticed that too. FFS, I have just bought a copy of the 2015 press :)

BroWelm
This one looks to be 2 LP's cut @ 45 RPM, instead of a single LP cut @ 33 RPM.

Zieryn
Perfection in every regard, can't get enough of the funk!

Barit
Best pressing quality in my collection. Stunning. Big props to Analogue Products on the job they did with this. I'll be buying more of their releases in the future.As far as the album goes, if you can listen through Chameleon and not break into at least a small head nod, you don't have a soul. This entire album is so unbelievably good it's hard to know what else to say.

kolos
Just got this too - it's beautiful - don't think I've heard a better press of anything before

Naa
As said in RES magazine in 2002 this is one of those special albums that "re-started" music. I think the last albums in this category are Loveless and SAW II. After that nothing gets to this level in terms of musical innovation and pushing the boundaries of art. About the pressing, the quality is amazing. Warm and natural sound that does justice to this great music. Remarkable job by Analogue Productions.

Morad
this was not the best album to discover at 12:30 AM... i have to work in the moring but gaht DAMN is that a funky groove

Whitehammer
Anybody else have some inner-groove distortion on this one? ?

MeGa_NunC
I have not noticed anything along those lines. Though my system needs updating.

Oso
not that i notice on my copy of this pressing sounds really nice i own more than a few MOV pressings and have not had any issues with inner-groove distortion.

Iesha
salve è la versione cartonata digipack o con custodia in plastica (jewel case) ?

Whitebinder
In effetti la foto può trarre in inganno ma è proprio fatta così col bordo bianco

Arryar
Sembra la jewelcase normale. Almeno quella che ho trovato io..

Tejar
Nothing to explain about this excllent album. If you don't like it you don't like the 70's Herbie Hancock music. About the pressing by Analogue Productions, the sound quality is excelent and worth the money.

Kaghma
Compared to any digital transfer I've heard (apart from the quadraphonic SACD) this one preserves the timbre of the synths and drums that used to feel completely blurred for some unknown reasons... (probably generation loss)This one is the real deal !

doesnt Do You
The 5.1 mix on this is very good!

GODMAX
I simply cannot imagine this record sounding any better than what this pressing delivers. Unbelievably good sound.

Xurad
Check out the 2 disc 45 RPM pressing from 2017.

Gagas
one of the best record i have ever heard. essential to all jazz / funk collector

Linn
You could easily make 4 albums from the ideas covered in this. They must have been touched by God when this was recorded because it still evokes just as strong a feeling, if not stronger, since my first listen.

Beazerdred
Let me cry for a while above this surrealistic-giantistic record.Please show me nowadays another record from any kind of genre,what it comes nearly close for this one... how many ideas and feeling, rhythm in one song like chameleon.. almost 40 minutes in heaven. ahh shameful days are our days, new releases with 80-90 minutes of shit.THIS one is a Masterpiece!

Tantil
Without a doubt one of the greatest musical statements ever made. I bought the CD when I was 16 and still consider it among my top five favorite albums of all time. Head Hunters is music you can feel in your gut AND your heart.

Xal
Not a good remaster, in my opinion... Mastered way too loud... unfortunately... creates digital artifacts in the peaks which are noticable when listened at loud volume.

Nto
Is there a greater keyboardist alive today than Mr. Hancock? I seriously doubt it.

Sironynyr
With Watermelon Man you get a stab at racial politics and an updated take on a classic song. Vein Melter is just that. Sit down and melt with this one. Chameleon is a for the deep dancefloor staple and has been a part of Theo Parrish's eclectic aesthetic and is one of those banging funk jams that has also been sampled by the likes of Ballistic Brothers vs. The Eccentric Afro's and has turned up in numerous variations that were released by obscurist short lived disco labels. Sly is just an out and out jam that proves that Herbie and gang can cut loose and hang.

Loni
Absolutely one of the best jazz funk LP i've ever heard,pure 70s sound.I've never been tired of listening it. Herbie plays the rodhes like a god supported by an awesome band. A MUST have. Peace

Buridora
Herbie Hancock at his almost best (Only "Sextant" is better). Don't know why it's here -it has only synthesizer sounds, but doesn't seem to be electronic. However, "Watermelon Man" is a tribal funk groove that has it. And the other 3 tracks are good, either. Always remember: it's more jazz than funk or anything else.
