Drummer, bandleader and activist Bubbha Thomas had toured America with R&B revues, served as a session musician for Peacock and Back Beat Records, and played straight ahead jazz with legends before the political and social upheaval of the late-60s led him to a path first charted by John Coltrane. 1971's Fancy Pants is his second LP with his Lightmen band and, like the deep-set, maverick jazz issued by the likes of Tribe and Strata East, is amongst the best of the '70s jazz underground, a collective voice of resistance to the musical and cultural status quo. This is the first time that Fancy Pants has seen reissue, and it's presented in both the issued stereo and previously unissued mono mixes as a double LP. This reissue was remastered from Bubbha's original master tapes. Bubbha and his band's story is told in great detail by Houston music and cultural historian Lance Scott Walker and Now-Again's Eothen Alapatt, in a booklet that contains dozens of unpublished photographs.
