Fans of acid Jazz, rare groove, funky black action sound tracks, and grooved out organ music ala Jimmy McGriff and Groove Holmes (circa the '70s) will be in soul heaven upon purchase of this well mastered well packaged CD... Remember those funky blaxploitation and nitty gritty crime drama soundtracks (my favorites including Cleopatra Jones, Coffee and Hell Up In Harlem)- - and of course the cool music during the mandatory "chase" scenes, even on those old TV shows ??? This is all that and a bag of escargot...(!) it also has lot's of surprizes... let me give one away : That's Brian Auger you hear bugging out on the Hammond Organ on that funky opening cut "Sexopolis" and "LSD Party" ! ! ! Though some of the other names, might not ring a bell, I'm sure when you hear them you'll start wanting to hunt down all their stuff (if not the movies from which they come) - - Take for example track 4, Phillipe Sarde "Jukes Boxes Chez Saidani" - - a Jazzed out ultra funky bassline, foppin "oriental tinged" funky conga and drum rhythms, and fat vibes swinging out Cal Tjader style with aid of an electric sitar - - Track 8 will even conjure up images of Lyn Collins of JB "It Takes Two To Make A Thing Go Right" people fame...This is the stuff some DJs wet their pants for... You'd probably think that would be the best track on the CD, but it continues to get better - - before you know it Claude Bolling is funking out... wild funky blaxploitation type orchestrations, the congas and drums overboard, psychadelic fuzz guitar, Ramsey Lewis type piano, and yes, a fat gushy chords sustained on a greasy Hammond.Read more ›
This album is full of atmospheric, Euro soundtrack music from the 60s and 70s. It features all the flourishes you would expect: vibraphones, hip rythms, and crime jazz. This is the kind of music that Stereolab and Broadcast are now trying to update, and it is wholely entertaining--the type of music you know exsists, but has only been pulled together on countless copalilations over the last 10 or 15 years.
I have been collecting music like this for some time now, slowly. You have to do it this way, or it all melds together. But this is a fine collection, whether you are just getting aqauinted with this genre, or are a collector who seeks this great music out.
Other favorites include "I don't know why" with the incredible breakbeat and raunchy vocals, "Petrol Pop" with its silly lyrics and musical-style backing vocals, and "Thème d'Oliver" with its great organ solo at the end.
If you love vintage stuff, breakbeats and organic sounds, get this CD, it's worth every penny!
