2012 release. R2 Records present a joint reissue of two albums from The Headhunters: 1975's Survival Of The Fittest and 1977's Straight From The Gate. This series is focused on reissuing classic and hard-to-find albums from the fun, soul, and jazz vaults. Two albums from one artist per release, digitally remastered from the original tapes. These albums aren't just music -- they are part of jazz and soul heritage. The first release in this series is one of the most important albums in jazz funk history. The Headhunters is the band Herbie Hancock used when moving into his electronic fusion period. In 1975 the band released their first project without Herbie, Survival Of The Fittest. The album solidified their trademark complex blend of styles and genres and the 1979 follow-up album Straight From the Gate developed their sound with a more accessible combination of jazz, funk, and rock. Now both of these groundbreaking albums have been digitally re-mastered from the original tapes and put together on one package for the first time.
