Sonny Sharrock - Monkey-Pockie-Boo (1970)

An album recorded in Paris on June 22nd, 1970 with wife Linda plus Ben Guerin (bass) and Jacques Thollot (drums). Sonny Sharrock was one of the top avant-garde guitarists and his playing was intense and ferocious. He mixed together Jimi Hendrix and Pharoah Sanders. "Sharrock was the first guitarist to really embrace fire music. He wanted his playing to mirror the emotional scream of the tenor saxophone' (Thurston Moore and Byron Coley)".

Hi there. I'm just getting into Sharrock and can't seem to find Highlife. You seem to have posted it a long while ago, but there's no link. Any way you could repost it? I'd be eternally grateful.

Happy Holidays!
