The Lyman Woodard Organization, Joy Road, 1975

Wax Poetics put this on my radar when they reissued a double pressing back in 2009. Moody, lo-fi jazz fusion from Detroit's small run 'Strata' label. The cover shot, photographed by activist Leni Sinclair is the contents of Lyman Woodard's pockets laid out on the motel bed after a show. Cigarette papers, cash, a lighter and a "saturday night special" pistol.
