IAN CARR & LYMAN WOODARD: BACK TO THEIR ROOTS


Ian Carr’s Nucleus: Roots
From Roots (Vertigo, 1973)

RIP to British prog/jazz/rock pioneer Ian Carr. I never did get that deep into his overall catalog (though I hear Belladonna is a must) but “Roots” has always been a favorite in the “heavy, heavy, heavy” category.

Lyman Woodard Organization: Belle Isle Daze
From Saturday Night Special (Strata, 1975)
