Earth Rot (1970) set the visionary composer/arranger/producer up for his final stage as an architect of jazz fusion and ensured that his productions would help future architects of hip hop.
We present here both vocal and instrumental versions of Axelrod’s classic Earth Rot. The instrumentals have never before been released. Both contain and an oversized, 28p. booklet that delves into Axelrod’s incredible life and music, replete with never before published photos and an interview with Axelrod by Eothen Alapatt and Waxpoetic’s Brian Digenti. Audiophile reissue, lacquered directly from Axelrod’s original master tapes at Capitol Records by Ron McMaster.
