Always In Trouble, An Oral History of ESP-DISK, by Jason Weiss


290 pgs.
Wesleyan University Press, Publ.

In 1964, Bernard Stollman launched the independent record label ESP-Disk' in New York City to document the free jazz movement there. A bare-bones enterprise, ESP was in the right place at the right time, producing albums by artists like Albert Ayler, Pharoah Sanders, and Sun Ra. But the label quickly ran into difficulties, and folded in 1974. "Always in Trouble" tells the story of ESP-Disk' from Stollman's point of view, as well as from many of the artists involved.
