Transferred from Analog Tapes!
Pressed at Third Man in Detroit.
Recorded in the basement studio of the Coltrane home in 1970, Alice Coltrane’s fourth album is a masterpiece of spiritual jazz. The title track is an ode to the Egyptian God Ptah (the El Daoud meaning « the beloved »). Moments on the album reach what Coltrane defined the term Turiya as « a state of consciousness – the high state of Nirvana, the goal of human life. » Verve By Request Series features transfers from analog tapes, remastered on 180-gram vinyl, and pressed at Third Man in Detroit.
