The subtle tug of those sixties memories come back when I listen to this album. Without lyrics, each song unlocks a door that a Hammond organ, electric guitar and horn will then light up a room. Many songs of the sixties and seventies came from these guys in the form of borrowed riffs and technique. The star maker machinery was too proud to let us in on where their organic music came from. But, like a old house in the distance, only up-close can the listener see the foundation still standing strong.

For me, I don't like this. But, I don't like instrumentals only music. Not heard a single word in the snippets. If you like instrumental only music, then check this out. However if you are like me, give it a miss.

Really!!

Pretty sure Al Kooper has never recorded anything that "sucks" He is an amazing artist, musician, arranger, and producer and it is all on display here. Will be happy to add ths to my AK collection.

Why?

Why does it "sucks"? This shows the depth of talent from Al Kooper

They Say All Music Guide

The best of all of Al Kooper’s studio albums, Rekooperation is a mostly instrumental album, on which the artist (playing organ and piano, and occasional guitar) and a band including Jimmy Vivino, Harvey Brooks, and Fred Walcott, among others, roar and pound their way through a baker’s dozen of R&B, rock & roll, and soul classics. Everything from chestnuts like “Soul Twist,” “Honky Tonk,” “Johnny B. Goode,” “Clean Up Woman,” and ” “Don’t Be Cruel” to originals such as “Downtime” and “Alvino Johnson’s Shuffle,” without a notable gap in quality between them, are included — and the one vocal number, “I Wanna Little Girl,” contains one of the finest singing performances that Kooper has ever turned in on record (but is also played so well, that it would work as an instrumental too). In many ways, this recording is a distant cousin to Blood, Sweat & Tears’ Child Is Father to the Man, and was his first attempt at leading a band since that 1968 venture, which was sort of fitting since it led to Soul of a Man, Kooper’s live-in-concert career retrospective album, the next time out. – Bruce Eder
