Comments

with original Mercury inner sleeve.

Inside The Groove

Another great album by a true genius Roland Kirk.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

This album contains 10 tracks, thus rather short in each tune. But the quality of each tune is a different matter. Roland Kirk's sound is always full of vitality, humor, energy, emotions, and a pure heart. Listen to a pure emotion on A-3 for example. Beautiful.

This album is another “beautiful”, artistic album by a true genius. Too good.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

10 out of 10
