Sonny Sharrock, Dance With Me Montana (Marge 1982)

I just came across this rare and nice early 80s (pre Bill Laswell) Sonny Sharrock recording at Brian Olewnic's review leads one to think it will be unlistenable with "astonishingly leaden drumming" and how it has "one of the very worst covers in the history of recordings." Well, to start with, I don't think the cover is that bad. This is a rare treat and a pleasant surprise. I'm enjoying the recording, more than some, maybe even most, of Sharrock's later recordings with Bill Laswell. It's an easy thumbs up.

Be sure to remember to leave an appreciative comment when visiting Also remember the website when prompted.


  1. When you're right, you're RIGHT! Great album. Thanks for the heads-up!

  2. please what's the password for sharing this Sharrock's recording ?

  3. Brians comment about the cover refers to the vinyl, which had a horrible painting of Sonny on the cover. really really bad.

    The music....well....Sonny did NOT want this released. Besides, there are much better recordings of his pre-Last Exit bands floating around on the net
