Double LP on 140gm
First released in 2004 under the pseudonym Phynix, Primal Prayer’s 8 tracks are a wildly creative fusion of jazz, world, dance and classical influences. Sonically the album is almost without comparison, a life-affirming acknowledgement of the many paths we humans walk to enable us to open our hearts and lives to each other.
Primal Prayer is part of a series of reissues and special releases of Glenn-Copeland’s catalogue, including most recently Beverly Copeland and Beverly Glenn-Copeland. Previous releases include a reissue of his career-defining record Keyboard Fantasies, and a reworked version of the album including reimaginations from the likes of Bon Iver, Arca and Blood Orange, plus an anthology and live album. Both originally released in the 70’s these two out of print works have become widely sought after by collectors. Revered as modern jazz-folk masterpieces, they have been remastered and re-cut for release by Guy Davie.
2LP - The black double vinyl includes a personal note from Romy (The xx) on the back sleeve, and it features ‘La Vita’, as sampled by Romy in her single ‘Enjoy Your Life’ earlier this year.
