Prelusion Description:
Prelusion is the debut album from iconic recording artist Patrice Rushen, originally released on Prestige Records in 1974. The album effortlessly zigzags between Post-Bop and Jazz Fusion, and features contributions from legendary saxophonist Joe Henderson. Reissued on vinyl for the first time in 50 years as part of Jazz Dispensary’s Top Shelf series, the album was cut from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray, pressed on 180-gram vinyl at RTI, and packaged in a gatefold tip-on jacket.

Alpha description:
Originally released in 1974 on the Stax imprint Truth Records, The Round Robin Monopoly's funk-soul extravaganza Alpha returns to vinyl for the first time in 50 years! Evoking the feeling of a car chase scene in a mid-'70s action movie, Alpha lives right at the intersection of top-notch musicianship and immaculate vibes. This Jazz Dispensary Top Shelf reissue was cut from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray, pressed on 180-gram vinyl at RTI, and comes packaged in a tip-on jacket.
