Reissue of the sought-after deep/spiritual jazz album - the first time it’s been pressed from the master tapes. All analog lacquer by Bernie Grundman.

Spiritual Jazz meets spiritual yearning: pianist and songwriter Bobby Hamilton’s magnum opus, his secret, his raw love letter to the music that didn’t seem to love him back.

Bernie Grundman resequenced Bobby’s long lost master tape and lacquered this album in an all-analog transfer.

Extensive liner notes by Torii MacAdams tell Bobby’s story of battling for deep jazz in the paranoiac polyester-and-cocaine 1970s. He founded the band Anubis in Syracuse, New York, and they put out the single “Ecology” on Charles Bazen’s Salt City imprint (later reissued on Now-Again's Soul Cal anthology). Shortly after issuing that single, Bobby put together the Bobby Hamilton Quintet Unlimited and recorded and issued Dream Queen in 1972.
