Truth – The Columbia Recordings 1969 – 1970 celebrates the music of this excellent band and features both of their Columbia albums in re-mastered form, along with six rare single tracks previously unissued on CD and six rare non-album session recordings from 1969 & 1970, including a re-recording of their early single What Would You Do If the Sun Died.

Emerging from Chicago into the heady, psychedelic avant-garde scene at the end of the 60s, The Flock were in thrall to Miles Davis’s Bitches Brew. The seven-piece line-up – centred on guitarist/singer Fred Glickstein and classical/jazz violinist Jerry Goodman – included two sax players and a trumpeter, and the opening track of their 1969 self-titled debut, called Introduction, has an alluring range of dynamics to draw you in. They can switch styles at will, often within the same song. The key for the casual listener is their left-field cover of the The Kinks’ Tired Of Waiting. But the sense that there’s more to come soon dissipates on their second album, Dinosaur Swamp, which is dense and bewildering. The ideas continue to flood in but there’s no quality control and the songs lack focus. Goodman, whose playing is a compelling feature on the first album, is relegated to a peripheral role.

The Flock is the self-titled debut album by The Flock. It was released in 1969. All songs written by The Flock, except as noted. Side One. "Introduction" – 4:50. I Am the Tall Tree" – 5:37.

Jerry Goodman - violin, backing vocals, guitar. Tom Webb - tenor saxophone.
