Hasaan Ibn Ali - Metaphysics: The Lost Atlantic Album

In 1965 Atlantic Records invited Hasaan Ibn Ali to record, but before mixing sessions could turn the recorded material into a releasable album, Ali had become incarcerated on a narcotics possession. Atlantic shelved the album. Thirteen years later that tape went up in flames in an Atlantic warehouse New Jersey. For years a rumor circulated, that a copy of the sessions had been made, but attempts to locate it never turned up a source… until now. Restored and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Michael Graves from a tape copy of long-lost reference acetates of the sessions, the package includes notes from producer Alan Sukoenig and author/pianist/teacher Lewis Porter.
