PR 5048 QD.
As if the title doesn't give it away, Permissive Polyphonics finds the king of studio kings attempting to make it in the groovy, quadraphonic age. The album is utterly dismissible, except for the gassy "Puppet Man," "Mas Que Nada," and "Pass and I Call You" (which features a Brasil '66-like chorus and Dick Hyman on Lowrey organ). These three tunes make it all worthwhile - at least for one listen.
Permissive Polyphonics (1970). Album by Enoch Light. It Was a Very Good Year.
Permissive Polyphonics had a modernist look. Big band leader and unlikely innovator Enoch Light pioneered the gatefold sleeve in the 1950s, a full decade before Sgt Pepper. Known for brassy versions of modern standards, this album cover reflected a progressive sensibility. This late career example updates Blue Note-style typography with a splash of modernist colour.
Confession - this album is pretty awful. Known for brassy versions of modern standards, Permissive Polyphonic’s cover reflected a progressive sensibility that wasn’t really there in the music. Still, big band leader and unlikely graphic innovator Enoch Light pioneered the gatefold sleeve in the 1950s, a full decade before Sgt Pepper. 04. Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers (1971).
