Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


Doug Carn's 1972 Spirit of the New Land is the keyboradist and composer's second of four albums released on the Black Jazz label. Spirit of the New Land also marked the first album which his wife, vocalist Jean Carn, contributed to. In addition to featuring Doug Carn's own stellar original compositions in songs like "Arise and Shine" and "My Spirit," the album highlights the Carns' renditions of classics like Miles Davis' "Blue in Green" and Lee Morgan's "Search for the New Land," adding a level of intricacy to the songs through Doug's original lyrics.

The album's talent is shared by Charles Tolliver (trumpet), George Harper (saxophone), Garnett Brown (trombone), Earl McIntyre (tuba) and Alphonse Mouzon (drums).

The VMP exclusive edition of Doug Carn's Spirit of the New Land is pressed on 1LP Natural with Black Swirl vinyl. The record will arrive in a single direct-to-board, foil stamped and hand numbered jacket and includes a two-page insert. The reissue is mastered by Mike Milchner of Sonic Vision Mastering.
