Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD, the full titles are "Rip Rig And Panic" and "Now Please Don't You Cry, Beautiful Edith".
If you're looking for a one-disc, non-compilation introduction to the genius of multi-instrumentalist Roland Kirk (he added the Rahsaan in 1969), look no further. Combining two classic albums from 1965 and 1967, this disc captures Kirk at two of his highest creative peaks. Backed by the all-star trio of pianist Jaki Byard, bassist Richard Davis, and drummer Elvin Jones, Kirk graces RIP RIG AND PANIC with some of his wildest and most free playing. Standout performances include the title track, "Slippery Hippery Flippery," the opening "No Tonic Pres," and the more subdued and traditional "From Bechet, Fats and Byas." NOW PLEASE DON'T YOU CRY BEAUTIFUL EDITH, Kirk's only recording for the legendary Verve label, is a considerably calmer affair but is no less wide-ranging, as it swings effortlessly from a gentle cover of Bacharach-David's "Alfie," to the impressionistic title track, to the flat-out rock & roll of "Fallout."
