As a home delivery customer I get the Sunday NY Times Arts and Leisure section a day early. Tomorrow's (8/6) Times "Playlist" by Nate Chinen touts the re-release of the 1967 proto-fusion album by The Free Spirits. This was guitarist Larry Coryell's shot at jazz-rock and frankly it's not very good and is sunk by truly awful vocals and lyrics. But Coryell is escaping blame because The Times says "the band's chief creative force was the guitarist Larry CARLTON"! Newspaper of record?
