Roland Kirk – The Inflated Tear (1968)

The Inflated Tear is an album by Roland Kirk released in 1968. One of his most popular albums and sometimes regarded as his magnum opus, it established his reputation as a jazz composer and earned him a modicum of respect in music circles who had previously written him off as a sideshow. It was re-released in 1998 by Rhino featuring a bonus track and extensive liner notes.
