Drummer, bandleader and activist Bubbha Thomas had toured America with R&B revues, served
as a session musician for Peacock and Back Beat Records, and played straight ahead jazz with
legends before the political and social upheaval of the late 1960s led him to a path first charted
by Coltrane. Energy Control Center, his third LP with his Lightmen band is his masterpiece:
deep-set, maverick jazz on part with the best Tribe and Strata East titles. This is a highpoint
amongst the best of the 1970s jazz underground, a collective voice of resistance to the musical
and cultural status quo.
Contains second disc with bonus tracks: unreleased alternate takes, including two versions of
the spiritual jazz classic "All Praises To Allah", all housed with an extensive booklet with photos
and liner notes.
