Raw Root is probably the weakest of Harold Alexander's albums, but still a solid release if you like your flute rare-groove stuff. This album is much more soulful and mellow than his Flying Dutchman releases. You don't get so much of that freaky scat stuff he does on those earlier albums, on here there's much more of a mellow groove throughout, and also much more in the way of a tradition song structure. Stand out tracks "Down Home" "Country Soul" & "Sandy's Love".

Written-By – Harold Alexander. Written-By – Harold Alexander. Raw Root is probably the weakest of Harold Alexander's albums, but still a solid release if you like your flute rare-groove stuff.

Its title to the contrary, Raw Root is Harold Alexander 's slickest LP and, perhaps as a consequence, his weakest - embracing fusion sensibilities and slower, profoundly mellow grooves, it sacrifices the fervor of his previous Flying Dutchman dates, although the cosmic reach of his signature flute remains intact
