BIRTH SIGN is George’s first record, released in 1972 by Delmark. George had been playing with Gene Ammons for about 3 years when this came out. The album was done in two sessions. One tune was with Robert Pierce on organ, Lester Lashley on bone, and Kalaparusha, an AACM saxophonist. The other tunes which were from a second session feature Von Freeman, organist Sony Burke, and drummer Billy Mitchell.
