Merl Saunders - Fire Up

Funky stuff from organist Merl Saunders who passed away recently. Some instrumental tracks, some with vocals. The album was released on Fantasy in 1973. Players are Merl Saunders on keyboardsand vocals, Jerry Garcia on guitar and vocals, Tom Fogerty and Mike Howell on rhythm guitar, John Kahn or Chuck Rainey on bass, Bill Vitt, Christopher Parker, Bill Kruetzman or Gaylord Birch on drums, Bill Sommers and Ken Nash on percussion and Walter Hawkins on vocals. Really nice funky music with some blues and jazz elements.
