        2006-09-22       Is It Too Late? / Duke Edwards & The Young Ones

when i bought this Duke & The Young Ones' album, i didn't know anything about them. so when i found his name Duke Edwards as the drummer on the history of Rhinoceros, i was surprised. because the sound of this album is so strange, like the poetly reading and gospel with free jazz and psychedelic improvisation, very different from Rhinoceros...
why i bought this record, because the photo of the front sleeve! one black guy (Duke Edwards) puts his hands on the two hippie looks guys' (one is white, another is black) heads, he is like black Jesus! i like this kind of suspicious and bizarre image very much!! but i found it in what is called "soul & funk" section at the record shop, so i imagined the sound would be just 60s soul music... but when i listened to this first track, i was so surprised! because it was just poetly reading with so psychedelic minimal music!! what's this!? although unfortunately i can't understand his lyrics, maybe a kind of cosmic messages...?
i read Duke Edwards worked with Sun Ra in early 60s, it's indeed... if all soul music is like this, i'm sure i really would love soul music very much... anyway this album is one of "cosmic black music" for me.
