The latest release in Now-Again’s Reserve Subscription series is Michael Cosmic & Phill Musra Group’s Peace In The World/Creator Spaces

SUBSCRIBE HERE: NOW-AGAIN RESERVE, A DELUXE VINYL SUBSCRIPTION

Now-Again Reserve: Custom-made LP’s delivered once per quarter, presenting some of the rarest records in their respective genres in high quality LP format. Each release is produced with the direct participation of the artist.

Free improvisation, first touched on by messengers like John Coltrane, Sun Ra and Albert Ayler, gives us an exuberant maelstrom that rejoices in life while it shoves back at complex, unforgiving social-political environments. The 70s Boston underground brought twin brothers Phill Musra and Michael Cosmic together with Turkish-born drummer Hüseyin Ertunç; as a trio, and with other Boston jazzers (John Jamyll Jones of Worlds Experience Orchestra, the 2nd Now-Again Reserve Edition entry), the twins each privately issued an album. Potent mixes of spirituality, expressionist fire and electrified newness, these LPs are presented as the 7th entry in the Now-Again Reserve Edition, mastered from the original tapes.

LP 1 (front cover): Michael Cosmic – Peace in the World
LP 2 (back cover): Phill Musra Group – Creator Spaces
LP 3 – bonus record available only to subscribers: previously unreleased tracks by Cosmic, Musra and World’s Experience Orchestra.

Below, original editions of Michael Cosmic’s Peace in the World (in three cover styles, 100 of each), and Phill Mustra Group’s Creator Spaces.
