Found in Leicester market along with some other great Jazz lp's that included Thad Jones, Charlie Parker and the Dizzy Gillespie landmark bebop LP 'Champ'. The cover looked vaguely familiar and one of the tracks sounded really familiar by name- "The World Is A Ghetto"!!!! Seeing that it had a cover of "Aquarius" on there and being on MPS it was purchased for the sizeable fee of 50 pence. Connoseirs of the breaks should be aware of this Lp for the 2 aformentioned tracks, Aquarius kicks of with what must be one of the heaviest and most begging to be sampled drum intro on any MPS recording whilst "The World Is A Ghetto" should be very familiar to most.
