Bobby Hamilton founded the band Anubis in Syracuse, NY and they put out their awesome “Ecology” single on Charles Bazen’s Salt City imprint. It’s a highlight on the 2012 Soul-Cal anthology Now-Again,something akin to Terry Callier and Gil Scott Heron’s most soulful works.

Shortly after issuing that single, Bobby put together the Bobby Hamilton Quintet Unlimited and recorded and issued Dream Queen in 1972. The last clean copy Bobby Hamilton had, he sold to the musician Jamie XX in 2021 for a princely sum.

Few originals will ever surface again – its original run of 500 units having disappeared into the ether decades ago. This is your chance to hear a masterwork of deep, spiritual jazz lacquered directly from its original master tape in an all analog transfer by the legendary Bernie Grundman. Dream Queen’s story is told for the first time in extensive liner notes by Torii McAdams. Dig deeper and expand.
