Description

This is Energy Control Center, the third album from Bubbha Thomas and his Lightmen. Working out of Houston, Texas, in the early ‘70s, the Lightmen released four albums of freak out spiritual-jazz, and their albums got a small, but discerning and rabid audience. These albums prove that there was amazing, boundary-pushing jazz that existed outside of the New York-L.A. nexus of ‘70s jazz. This new edition of the album, released in partnership with our pals at Now Again, is remastered from the original tapes and features a Listening Notes booklet—with a new interview with Bubbha himself.
