Mercy, Mercy is a 1968 live album by Buddy Rich and his big band, recorded at Caesars Palace. LP side A. "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" (Joe Zawinul) – 5:34. Preach and Teach" (Johnny Burke) – 4:06. Channel One Suite" (Bill Reddie) – 12:50. LP side B. "Big Mama Cass" (Don Sebesky) – 3:22. Goodbye Yesterday" (Don Piestrup) – 6:18. Acid Truth" (Don Menza) – 5:50. Alfie" (Burt Bacharach, Hal David) – 3:49. Ode to Billie Joe" (Bobby Gentry) – 3:39. Bonus tracks added to 1997 Blue Note CD reissue.

This CD reissue brings back the finest all-round recording by Buddy Rich's big band. The original version of "Channel 1 Suite" is a classic and contains tenor saxophonist Don Menza's most memorable solo, plus a couple of brilliant improvisations from the explosive drummer/leader. Another highlight is an inventive Phil Wilson arrangement of "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," and even "Alfie" (a melodic feature for altoist Art Pepper) and "Ode to Billie Joe" come across well.

From the Album Mercy, Mercy. I was raised on Buddy Rich-my father loved his music "yes, well, John Bonham has Moby Dick". until I heard Channel One Suite live from London. This is pure big band sound with ebbs and flows, solos and tempos that change constantly. Buddy's solo is off the cuff excellent and he does things that should not be humanly possible. He does more with just a snare drum and bass than most drummers can accomplish with a 14 piece set.
