Lou Ragland I Travel Alone
Lou Ragland - I Travel Alone
(3CD/4LP/Digital) Numero Group NUM042, 2012-03-26

"O'Jays road manager, Don King prison chauffeur, window washer, house painter, Ink Spot, Domino, producer, engineer, label owner, guitorgan technician, and one-time steward of a coveted Jet Magazine delivery route, Lou Ragland is Cleveland's Eastside success story. Though suffocated by Lake Erie's nitrate rich waters and the burning oil from a Cuyahoga River fire, between 1967-1977 Lou Ragland produced the most thoughtful, hopeful, and downright soulful work to come out of the Forest City. Bookended by his dynamic albums Hot Chocolate and Understand Each Other, I Travel Alone gathers period singles, collaborations, and an unreleased live album cut in 1973, revealing a Cleveland genius in a musical microcosm of fearless and confident creation." - says the press release. The sampler CD we received is very cool (and soulful!), and we can only imagine that the new Numero Group boxset from which the tracks are taken from will be worth it...
