Editorial Reviews

The music world of the early 1970s was a time of experimentation and activism. When listeners heard Santana play 'Free Angela' on their classic 1973 release Lotus, few, if any knew the song was originally released by its writer, Todd Cochran, a year before.

'Worlds Around The Sun' was recorded and issued on Prestige Records in 1972 by Todd Cochran (as Bayete). Not only did the young protege write all of the album's material, he also produced and played keyboards on it, along with other jazz greats including a young Bobby Hutcherson on vibes. The combination of jazz and groove, anchored by Cochran's pumping Rhodes and clavinet have made 'Worlds Around The Sun' a legend. Over 40 years later, the album has become a holy grail of collectors, with copies fetching unbelievable prices. When copies can be found, that is . . .

Omnivore Recordings is proud to issue this classic on CD for the first time. To make this release even more fantastic, two previously unissued tracks from the sessions have been added as bonus tracks. Adding in rare photos from Cochran's personal library, as well as an in-depth conversation with Pat Thomas, the author of 'Listen, Whitey! The Sights And Sounds Of Black Power 1965-1975,' about the material and the time in which it was recorded, 'Worlds Around The Sun' is ready to be (re)introduced to the world.

While Cochran's playing would later appear on releases from artists as diverse as Automatic Man, Stanley Clarke and Peter Gabriel the journey begins with 'Worlds Around The Sun.'
