The Crusaders ‎– Crusaders 1. Label: Blue Thumb Records ‎– BTS 6001. Format: 2 Vinyl, LP, Album, Gatefold. Theres some smoking piano licks Sample lays down in the deeper end of the album and the remastered cd sounds fantastic. The Crusaders at least early on . 1971-1976 pushed themselves and used clever motif's to drown you the eager listener in their stream of groovin' creations. By the end of the 1970s something about this band changed and tho I have never 100% discounted Joe Samples, Stix Hooper and Wilton Felders contributions the energy and vitality of their early works "sans" vocals remains timeless

The Crusaders – Crusaders 1 ( Blue Thumb, 1972 ). This album was already a soul jazz treasure when it came out in 1972. It’s a kind of debut album after they ended their Jazz Crusaders years. Track Listing : 1. That’s How I Feel 2. So Far Away 3. Put It Where You Want It 4. Mystique Blues 5. Full Moon 6. Sweet Revival 7. Mud Hole 8. It’s Just Gotta Be That Way 9. Georgia Cottonfield 10. A Shade Of Blues 11. Three Children 12.

Crusaders I is not only their most successful post-Jazz Crusaders album, it stands as one of the highpoints of their entire productive career (that is, before they started cranking out worthless fluff). This 1971 double-album captures a talented bunch of jazz musicians energetically reaching out to embrace the best elements of rock and funk, but without compromising their integrity. With their masterful improvising skills still in full force, the Crusaders plugged in, adding electric piano, electric bass, and most importantly, the electric guitar of Larry Carlton.

An epic masterwork of melodic instrumental soul jazz/funk. Believe the hype - this massive double-LP is thoroughly and coherently laced with ultra-creative hooks, funky grooves, airtight arrangements, instrumental virtuosity, improvisations that take your ears on a truly cosmic journey, and much more... I'm surprised I had never previously exposed myself to the sheer genius of Sample, Henderson and Felder and the harmonious group efforts that make this music so unique. (Perhaps it could also be said that patience pays off because I've had this album laying around for 4+ years and I never cleaned it up and listened to it until very recently!) I can't get enough of these guys and am eager to discover more of their vast discography.Oh, and if anybody was wondering about the sound quality on this Canadian pressing... it's absolutely spectacular! A common motif throughout the entire album is an incredible, warm, room-filling soundscape where every instrument in the mix can be heard with impeccable clarity, accuracy and transparency. The bass guitar is prominent and legible just as I like my bass; the drums and percussion have just the right amount of THWACK and driving, immersive dynamics and depth to induce a guaranteed high level of toe-tapping; the EQ is well-rounded and melodic. Mind you, there are rare moments when Quality Records' trademark treble emphasis sticks out like a sore thumb: the occasional brass instrument solos are engineered such that they are a little shrill and hard on the ears. However, it's nothing to blow a gasket over given that this is otherwise such a brilliantly-engineered album. Recommended all the way.
