The final entry in the legendary Strata catalog repressed! DJ Amir Abdullah's 180 Proof imprint continues to breathe new life into the Strata Inc. catalog with this faithful reissue of Larry Nozero's 1975 masterpiece Time. This follows Kenny Cox's previously unreleased gem Clap Clap! The Joyful Noise and is yet another sought-after Detroit jazz piece that fetches loot whenever it pops up (which is next to never). Time is given the super deluxe treatment here, remastered from the original reel to reel masters and pressed at 45 RPM over two 180g LPs for the best sound quality. In addition the artwork as been restored and is printed on heavy stock "Tip On" Gatefold sleeves with extensive liner notes and never seen before photos to boot. Face it, you're probably never going to cop the original, so get with this reissue while it lasts.
