  • In 1969—some three yearsbefore his self-titled debut solidifed his stature as a pre-eminent Fenderbender—Roy Buchanansigned with Polydor Records and began work on his frst full-length platter. But ittook 35 years before thismaterial saw the light of day with the release ofTheProphet: The UnreleasedFirst Polydor Albumon CD.

    Augmenting the 10-track running order that would have made up Roy’s debut record, the single-CD package contained 30-plus minutes of previouslyunreleased outtakes, including tunes documented at anaborted March of 1971 session. This stuff is every bit as good as the offcial Polydor releases; the medley of “After Hours”/”The Messiah Will Come Again,” for instance,might even be better than the respective later versions of those songs that showed up on Roy’s albums. Neverbefore on vinyl,The Prophetcomes in a 2-LP set pressed in orange and black “fre” vinyl (because you won’t often encounter more fery guitar work than what’shere), housed in a gatefoldjacket and limited to 2,500copies, exclusive to RSD/Black Friday!
