Reincarnation of a Love Bird is an album by jazz bassist and composer Charles Mingus, recorded in November 1960, but unreleased until 1988 due to the closure of the Candid label in 1961. Four of the five long tracks presented from this session have never been issued on Candid before. The extended head-arrangement "R & R" spotlights urgent Eldridge and a relatively mellow Dolphy in a combination that still sounds strange and wonderful. "Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams" is the previously unknown alternate, while the beautiful "Body & Soul" is the highlight of this unique and timeless collaboration between Roy Eldridge and the Mingus men. Limited first press of 500 numbered copies.
