Description

Repress from this beautiful record that holds the middle between a jazz and a opera record. The vocals come from the book of Isaiah in the Bible. There's a nine-piece choir singing these texts, accompanied by a 15-piece orchestra that includes Ernie Watts, Earl Palmer, Willie Green, and Jack Kelso. Musically, each side is divided into four sections. Side one deals with the warnings themselves. Axelrod's musical begins by celebrating the earth's lorry and then indicting humans for messing it up. His upfront horn section is underlined by the use of flute and guitar.
