This multi-instrumentalist was one of the great pianists, organists, and harpists in the jazz world from the early 60’s until she passed in 2006.  She was also a powerful band leader and arranger.  She was married to John Coltrane and joined his group in the mid-60’s, replacing McCoy Tyner.  She had a major influence on her husband’s expansion into the free jazz realm.  She recorded over 20 albums as leader, with this being her fifth.  It is a beautifully soulful collection.  Check out the critique from Allmusic which describes it as  “art of the highest order, conceived by a brilliant mind, poetically presented in exquisite collaboration by divinely inspired musicians and humbly offered as a gift to listeners.  It is a true masterpiece".  The album was released on Impulse! in 1971, number AS-9210.  This is the original release of the album.  The vinyl is in beautiful condition with its bright original luster and just a couple of very light paper scuffs that barely impact play.  It plays with almost no background noise.  The vinyl grades VG+.  The gatefold album cover shows light ring wear and very light corner and edge wear.  All seams are sharp, tight, and intact.  There is a name sticker near the bottom right corner. The original label inner sleeve is included and has just one tiny split on the bottom seam. The cover grades VG+.  Track List:  Universal Consciousness Battle At Armageddon Oh Allah Hare Krishna Sita Ram The Ankh Of Amen-Ra Grading Information I always clean and then listen to every record I list on eBay.  I do this to make sure I can give as accurate a description of each record as possible.  I will do both a visual check and an audio check.  I absolutely attempt to give as objective a grading as I can.  I don’t ever want you to be disappointed in the quality of the album you receive.  I use four grades in my grading:  NM, VG+, VG, and G.  The only exception is a sealed album which is presumed to have vinyl in mint condition.  My NM grading means that the vinyl looks and plays as though it is the first time out of the sleeve.  The VG+ rating is used on any album that plays great but has one or two small defects.  It may have a pop here and there or some occasional background static.  On a VG album you can expect that, typically, this album will play great, but you’ll see more defects on this than your VG+ rated album.   Most often the VG rated album may even play well enough to be graded VG+, but the color or blemishes drop the grading.  Likewise, you may occasionally find an album that looks almost NM but the sound quality just isn’t there.  That’s why I play every album first, because this does happen.  In this case the vinyl will be graded VG.  Occasionally I will list an album with a grade of G. This is one where I consider the collectible value of the album to be great enough that the copy being presented is worth having as a filler copy. Shipping Information – Combined Shipping The shipping cost will be based on the weight of your package.  For Media Mail, shipping is $4.00 in the continental U.S.  In addition, I will happily combine records from multiple auctions to reduce total shipping cost.  In fact, I welcome it!  Shipping will be $4.00 in the U.S regardless of the number of auctions won in any 5-day period.  Canada shipping is calculated based on weight using US Postal Service rates.  Combined shipping is also welcomed here and does result in significant per-album cost savings.  The first album will be shipped for $21.  Additional albums will be shipped for $6 per album, with up to four pounds able to be shipped before we need to use International Priority shipping.  At that point we will work together on final determination of shipping cost.  Shipments to outside the US and Canada will vary depending on your country.  Typically the cost per album will be no more than $27.  Combined shipping is welcome here as well, at a cost of $10 per additional album up to the maximum of four pounds. All albums will be shipped in specially designed album hard cardboard mailers with a cardboard insert to prevent damage upon opening.  The vinyl is removed from the cover and presented in a new poly sleeve.  I am committed to one day turnaround on shipments.  If I receive payment before 7:00 AM Central Time I will package and ship that same day. Thank you  for looking and please contact me with any questions.
