2008 reissue

In 1968 the Chris McGregor Group were riding high on the London jazz scene, playing and hanging out with all the rising stars of British free jazz. Very Urgent their eagerly awaited debut recording was a joyful call of intent. The album mixes simple but utterly unstoppable tunes and exhilarating horn charts – immediately establishing a vitality and exuberance that would continue to define the group. Forty years later, Fledg’ling Records are very proud to bring this splendid album back into print. The passing years have not diminished its impact. Re-mastered from the original master tapes. 

“Their evident preference for raw energy and rough spirit over absolute precision never quite obscures the technical proficiency available to the ensemble. There is often a sense of things falling effortlessly into place that’s only found in the most exceptional units.”“Probably the most exciting band of any kind in London at the present.” Melody Maker 1971
