Archie Bell & The Drells

I Can't Stop Dancing

    A great album that mixes the group's earlier 1960s funk attack with producers Gamble & Huff's soul stompers. The classic cuts "I Can't Stop Dancing" and "Jammin' In Houston" are here.

    FORMAT INFORMATION

    LP Info: US import reissue with authentic replica sleeve and label artwork.

    BRIT Award winner, cultural commentator, critically acclaimed director and actor, and musical maverick Ben Drew aka Plan B is back with his eagerly anticipated fourth studio album ‘Heaven Before All Hell Breaks Loose’. The three time Ivor Novello Award winner has also released new single ‘Heartbeat’, written with Kwabs and Al Shux (Jay Z, Lana Del Ray), which marries Plan B’s incredible signature vocals with soulful, uplifting beats and spine-tingling melodies.

    The artwork for HBAHBL was unveiled, which focuses around the classic sci-fi image of world renowned illustrator John Harris, tying in Plan B’s fascination with the world we live in and the future we’re creating for ourselves. It also sees Plan B collaborating with other writers and producers for the first time, including Arrow Benjamin (Runnin’ Naughty Boy/Beyonce); Foy Vance; Fred Gibson (Ellie Goulding, Charli XCX), and Kid Harpoon (Florence and the Machine, HAIM). 

    Earlier in 2017 to mark his return to the scene, Plan B revealed a brand new stand-alone track ‘In The Name Of Man’, which focused around mass upheaval. The video saw collaboration with Flabbergast Theatre, a small company that he came across at a show in Angel, London. He was hugely inspired by their innovative and incredibly life-like use of puppetry, often using tiny movements to convey bold emotions, and employed this with incredible effect, alongside captivating historical footage


    Ooof! Here we get a timely repress of a true underground club classic and rarity perfect for the disco heads and the boogie crew. Larry 'Wu' Wedgeworth dropped this sublime piece of Boogie in 1984 on the Atlantic label and both sides have long been firm favourites with serious soul aficionados for many years. "Let Me Show You" was one of numerous major label dance records from that golden mid 80's post-Disco era that caused a storm in the underground clubs of the day. This one's long been sought after on 12" and has been bootlegged numerous times, often with inferior sound quality and no care taken, not this time though, this high quality, official, 100% legit reissue has been lovingly restored from the master tapes. Beat that. Both the original vocal mix and dub version are included here with og Atlantic label artwork. Don't waste your time on the fakes! This one's the real deal!

    Otis Redding

    (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay

    “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay” will be released as a 7” single on gold vinyl to mark the golden anniversary of 50 years since the single’s release. The track continues to transcend generations, holding the distinction of being one of a handful of songs from the ‘60s to have over 100 million streams on Spotify.
    A detailed reproduction of the original mono single, it features the B-Side “Sweet Lorene,” is branded as a Volt release, and comes in a die-cut sleeve like those used by Atlantic Records, which was distributed Stax/Volt Records at the time.
    This single includes the rare, original version of the song, which is shorter and with Redding’s vocals noticeably lower in the mix. This original version was quickly pulled after a brief release and replaced with the version that the world has known ever since. This anniversary 7-inch marks the first time the original version has appeared on vinyl since the initial release in 1968.


    STAFF COMMENTS

    Millie says: Otis Redding bringing us this upbeat spectacular seven inch featuring the legendary (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay which is rightly pressed on gold coloured vinyl! Paired with this is the single “Sweet Lorene” which provides all your funk and soul needs.

    Los Angeles, CA’s Weezer will release their eleventh album, Pacific Daydream on Crush Music/Atlantic Records. Produced by Butch Walker, Pacific Daydream is the follow up to the critically acclaimed album Weezer (The White Album), which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Album at the end of last year.

    Following the release of Weezer (The White Album), the band began working on what they called “The Black Album,” but as they worked, they found the songs they were writing felt more like reveries from a beach at the end of the world. Instead of forcing a different direction, they began an entirely new album; Pacific Daydream was born.

    The War On Drugs

    A Deeper Understanding

    The War On Drugs announce their fourth full-length album, A Deeper Understanding, out August 25th on Atlantic Records. A Deeper Understanding is the band’s first album since 2014’s universally acclaimed Lost In The Dream, and their debut album with Atlantic. Following the Record Store Day release of the 11-minute “Thinking of a Place,” The War On Drugs present the album’s lead single, “Holding On.”

    For much of the three and a half year period since the release of Lost In The Dream, The War On Drugs’ frontman, Adam Granduciel, led the charge for his Philadelphia-based sextet as he holed up in studios in New York and Los Angeles to write, record, edit, and tinker—but, above all, to busy himself in work. Teaming up with engineer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Weezer), Granduciel challenged the notion of what it means to create a fully realized piece of music in today’s modern landscape. Calling on his bandmates – bassist Dave Hartley, keyboarding Robbie Bennett, drummer Charlie Hall and multi-instrumentalists Anthony LaMarca and Jon Natchez -- continuously throughout the process, the result is a “band record” in the noblest sense, featuring collaboration, coordination, and confidence at every turn. Through those years of relocation, the revisiting and re-examining of endless hours of recordings, unbridled exploration and exuberance, Granduciel’s gritty love of his craft succeeded in pushing the band to great heights. 


    STAFF COMMENTS

    Andy says: Adam Granduciel and co. exploded into our hearts with the peerless ‘Lost In The Dream’, three years ago. Taking classic 70s rock (particularly of a Dylan vintage) and somehow making it modern, here was a band for right across the ages, a band to truly believe in. They returned, this year (on Record Store Day!) with their magnum opus, and it was immediately apparent that with "Thinking Of A Place", they had, incredibly upped the ante. Here was 11 massive minutes of bliss and wonder. High summer and the album dropped: ‘LITD’ part two, or squared, if you like. The songs were huge (in every way) but the production was out of this world. This was sun-roof down, beers in the back, cruise control, heart-rending, shimmering classic rock. But, crucially, with a drum machine! Everything we could have hoped for in a follow-up to a modern classic.

    Grammy-winning band Phoenix are thrilled to announce their new album, Ti Amo, via Loyaute/Glassnote/Atlantic Records. The band - comprised of Thomas Mars (vocals), Laurent Brancowitz (guitar), Christian Mazzalai (guitar), and Deck D’Arcy (bass) - detailed creating the album to the New York Times earlier this week, who called it “the band’s most unabashedly romantic record yet.

    Ti Amo is Phoenix’s first album since 2013’s critically lauded Bankrupt!. Produced by the band and recorded at La Gaîté Lyrique (Paris) with the help of long-time collaborator Pierrick Devin, Ti Amo is - in the band’s own words – an album about simple pure emotions: love, desire, lust and innocence, it’s also a record about their European, latin roots, a fantasized version of Italy: a lost paradise made of eternal Roman summers (hyper-light, hyper-clarity, pistachio gelato), juke-boxes on the beach, Monica Vitti and Marcello Mastroiani, fearless desire and Antique marble statues.

      Frightened Rabbit

      Painting Of A Panic Attack

      Selkirk’s finest Frightened Rabbit announce their eagerly awaited fifth studio album, Painting Of A Panic Attack, due for release on 8th April via Atlantic Records. Their second major label release sees a slight reshuffle in band members and the addition of The National’s Aaron Dessner on production duties. Electronic elements and frontman Scott Hutchison’s dark and emotionally honest lyrics are expertly woven into the band’s soaring sonic palate, resulting in a body of work that will challenge, excite and surprise longtime FR fans and new listeners alike.

      Following the departure of member Gordon Skene in March 2014, the remaining four members of the band - Hutchison, his brother Grant (drums), Billy Kennedy (bass) and Andy Monaghan (guitar & keyboards) - retreated to a studio in Wales to lay the foundations of the new record. They recruited touring band member Simon Liddell (guitar/keys) as a permanent addition.

      Painting Of A Panic Attack is much indebted lyrically to Los Angeles, following Scott’s move from Scotland to the States in 2014 to be with his girlfriend. He quickly realised that the city just wasn’t for him. Taking inspiration from what he saw, Painting is often a love/hate letter to LA. Hutchison sings of the loneliness the change instilled in him, of the disparity between the rich and the throngs of homeless in the city, and of his daily struggle with his new life and homesickness for Scotland.

      During the making of the record Hutchison began to draw similarities between the record and the concept of monuments and memorials, which is reflected in the artwork – a peaceful place, a place of beauty where people go to remember and reflect on chaotic, turbulent and troubling times. The lyrics are the subject of this reflection, brutality next to beauty. Hutchison’s feeling of detachment also represents a major theme throughout the record. Tracks such as ‘Get Out’, the lead single which chronicles an addictive and obsessive love, and ‘Still Want To Be Here’, telling of his constant struggle with LA, perfectly encapsulate the mind-set of the Frightened Rabbit front-man since the band’s last release. The opening track from the record, ‘Death Dream’, an uplifting yet emotionally wrought track featuring frontman Scott Hutchison’s visceral lyrics, striking a bold sonic shift for the band.

      '99 Cents' explores the commercial nature of our world and the ways in which we package ourselves and our lives for consumption. Santigold commented - “We have no illusion that we don’t live in this world where everything is packaged. People’s lives, persona, everything, is deliberate, and mediated. It can be dark and haunting and tricky, and freak us out, but it can be also be silly and fun and we can learn to play with it.” She also explores our fascination with perfection and our inherent inability to attain it. The use of playful satire, social critique, and self-examination to explore these themes is reflected in the album’s cover art; a collaboration with photographer Haruhiko Kawaguchi, that finds Santigold blister-packed amongst her cluttered possessions ready for the store shelves.

      On '99 Cents', Santigold wanted to explore new corners of her sound and different ways to convey her vision and political commentary. She worked with long-time collaborators John Hill, Dave Sitek, and Doc McKinney and collaborated with artists she hadn’t worked with previously, including Patrik Berger, Vampire Weekend’s RostamBatmanglij, Hit Boy, Justin Raisen, BC, ILOVEMAKONNEN, and Sam Dew. The result is the bright and big sound of '99 Cents' that takes the genre-defying fearlessness Santigold has become known for to new places.


      The Velvet Underground

      Loaded: Re-Loaded - 45th Anniversary Edition Deluxe 5CD/1DVD Boxset

        One of the greatest albums of all time, Velvet Underground’s Loaded will return as a six-disc collection that includes:

        - The original album remastered in both stereo and mono
        - A generous selection of demos, early versions and alternate mixes from that era
        - A newly remastered/re-edited version of Live At Max’s Kansas City
        - Two high resolution mixes, plus a surround sound mix in DTS and Dolby Digital
        - An unreleased May 1970 concert recorded in Philadelphia

        Remastered stereo and mono versions of the album fill out the first two discs, along with various outtakes, and the mono mix for the unissued single: “Rock & Roll” b/w “Lonesome Cowboy Bill.” The third disc explores the creative process behind many of the songs on the album with more than 20 demos, early versions and alternate mixes.

        Fans will be excited to hear the unreleased club performance featured on the fifth disc. It was recorded on May 9, 1970 at the Second Fret in Philadelphia by Bob Kachnycz, a fan who hitchhiked to the show and recorded it on reel-to-reel. The band was down to a trio that night: Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison and Doug Yule, who alternated between bass and drums to fill in for Moe Tucker, who was pregnant at the time. Loaded, which came out six months after the show, is well represented with seven songs, including: “Cool It Down,” “Oh! Sweet Nuthin’” and “Sweet Jane.”

        The final disc is an audio only DVD that features three different mixes of Loaded.

        Kwabs’ hugely-anticipated debut album 'Love + War' is released on Atlantic Records. Having been tipped by - among others - the respected BBC Sound Poll 2015, Kwabs has spent this year perfecting his debut offering; harnessing the emotional ups and downs of a less-than-conventional route to where he is today, resulting in an open-hearted record, full of soaring confessional soul. Recently revealed new tracks 'Look Over Your Shoulder' and 'Forgiven' are perfect examples of his stunning vocals and delicately-crafted lyrics, highlighting the breadth and originality of his debut.

        Atlantic recording group Death Cab for Cutie release their much-anticipated eighth studio album.

        'Kintsugi' marks their first new album since the departure last year of founding guitarist/keyboardist/producer Chris Walla. Recorded in Los Angeles with Rich Costey (Franz Ferdinand, Muse, Interpol) behind the board, the album takes its title from the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics with precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum, highlighting cracks rather than hiding them. As such, kintsugi represents a compassionate aesthetic philosophy in which damage and wear are embraced as part of an object’s history. “Considering what we were going through internally, and with what a lot of the lyrics are about, it had a great deal of resonance for us – the idea of figuring out how to repair breaks and make them a thing of beauty,” says bassist Nick Harmer, who suggested the name to singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard and drummer Jason McGerr. “Philosophically, spiritually, emotionally, it seems perfect for this group of songs.”

                Owl John, aka Scott Hutchison of critically acclaimed Scottish group Frightened Rabbit, releases his self-titled debut album through Atlantic Records. The record, produced by Andy Monaghan of Frightened Rabbit and good friend Simon Liddell of Olympic Swimmers, was recorded between the Isle of Mull in Scotland and the West Coast of America. The Owl John album was born of Scott’s desire to get creatively inspired ahead of the next Frightened Rabbit record. It showcases Scott’s trademark brutal honesty - raw, powerful, and often heart-breaking, “Owl John” will see Scott step out of Frightened Rabbit’s shadow.

                The Led Zeppelin legend began in January of 1969 with the group’s eponymous debut. From the opening salvo of “Good Times Bad Times,” on through to “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” “Communication Breakdown,” and “Dazed And Confused,” the album introduced the band’s unmistakable sound and left an indelible mark on the music landscape.

                The companion audio for Led Zeppelin features a previously unreleased performance recorded on October 10, 1969 at the Olympia Theatre in Paris. The nine-song set features seven tracks from the album, including an epic 15-minute version of “Dazed And Confused,” as well as “Heartbreaker” and “Moby Dick,” which would debut on Led Zeppelin II later that month.

                Following the whirlwind success of their first two albums and near constant touring, Page and Plant took to the now famous Bron-Yr-Aur cottage in Wales in 1970 to start the early composition of Led Zeppelin III. They later convened with Bonham and Jones for rehearsals before entering London’s Olympic Studios to begin recording in May 1970. Fueled by classic tracks such as “Immigrant Song” and “Since I’ve Been Loving You,” the album soared to the top of charts worldwide upon its release in October of 1970 and has since been certified 6x platinum.

                The nine tracks featured on Led Zeppelin III’s companion audio continue to offer a window into the band’s recording process with seven studio outtakes of songs from the album as well as three previously unheard compositions: “Jennings Farm Blues” (an instrumental forerunner of “Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp”), “Bathroom Sound” (an instrumental version of “Out On The Tiles”), and their take on the blues classics “Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind.”

                The band wrote and recorded nearly all of Led Zeppelin II while touring relentlessly to support its debut album. Incredibly, the album was released just seven months after Led Zeppelin in October of 1969. Led Zeppelin II features some of the band’s most beloved tracks including “Ramble On” and “Heartbreaker” as well as “Whole Lotta Love,” considered by many to be one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll songs of all time.

                The Led Zeppelin II companion audio gives fans the first peek into the band’s recording sessions, with alternate mixes of five songs from the album, backing tracks to “Thank You” and “Living Loving Maid (She’s Just A Woman),” and the previously unreleased track “La La.”

                Andy says: Superior second album, with better songs and a deeper dynamic. Never better presented than in this Jimmy Page remaster.

Incredibly, the album was released just seven months after Led Zeppelin in October of 1969.

                  Led Zeppelin

                  III - Super Deluxe Remastered Edition

                    Following the whirlwind success of their first two albums and near constant touring, Page and Plant took to the now famous Bron-Yr-Aur cottage in Wales in 1970 to start the early composition of Led Zeppelin III. They later convened with Bonham and Jones for rehearsals before entering London’s Olympic Studios to begin recording in May 1970. Fueled by classic tracks such as “Immigrant Song” and “Since I’ve Been Loving You,” the album soared to the top of charts worldwide upon its release in October of 1970 and has since been certified 6x platinum. 

                    The nine tracks featured on Led Zeppelin III’s companion audio continue to offer a window into the band’s recording process with seven studio outtakes of songs from the album as well as three previously unheard compositions: “Jennings Farm Blues” (an instrumental forerunner of “Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp”), “Bathroom Sound” (an instrumental version of “Out On The Tiles”), and their take on the blues classics “Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind.”

                      Joy Formidable

                      Cholla

                        The Joy Formidable return with their first release from new album ‘Wolf’s Law’ on October 15th. As NME noted prior to their first UK shows of 2012 at packed NME / Radio One Stages at Reading and Leeds Festivals on hearing sneak previews of the new songs, ‘Wolf’s Law’ ‘could well see them become the next big British guitar band’.

                        The finished album, for which ‘Cholla’ is the perfect calling card, takes the band’s already acknowledged mastery of melody and dynamic to another level, achieving the band’s aim at its inception ‘to keep the sense that everything is possible.’

                        Stick Mcghee

                        Two of the finest examples of belting barrelhouse jumpin’ blues at their very best and finally available on a 45 format. "Drank Up All The Wine Last Night" is another classic to add to the 'drunk R&B' sub-section.

                        Santogold

                        LES Artistes

                        The hotly-tipped Santogold precedes here self-titled debut CD with new single "LES Artistes". Originally the B-side of her debut 12" on Downtown, this catchy pop track now gets A-side billing. "LES Artistes" artists sounds just like it's been taken from a 1980s Brat pack film (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off etc), and is possibly actually by The Bangles or The B-52s. Yep, it's one of those US electrorock'n'roll chuggers with a big sing-along chorus! On the flipside of the 45 we have "Your Voice", a super-sweet lovers reggae track that comes across like Altered Images In Dub!

                        "Find The Time" is the first single to be taken from the forthcoming album "Searching For The Hows And Whys". Co-produced by Get Cape Wear Cape Fly and Nitin Sawnhey, "Searching For The Hows And Whys" is the follow up to the twenty one year old's 2006 debut album "The Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager" which was a massive hit with fans and critics alike.

                        "Lupe Fiasco's The Cool" - a largely conceptual tour-de-force - is the stunning new album by Chicago native, Lupe Fiasco. It includes the club smash "Dumb It Down" and "Superstar", the first single to be taken from the album. This second long player from the Chicago native shows that "Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor" was no one-off. Lupe once again possesses an array of head-spinning wordplay and a topical range more akin to the underground than the mainstream. "Lupe Fiasco's The Cool" proves that talent can still make waves in the rap game.

                        Switches continue their ascent with this forthcoming Southend stomper of a single, "Lay Down The Law". The band have spent the last three months building their collective armoury and sharpening their shows with gigs here, there and everywhere. They now exit the starting blocks faster than a steroid influenced sprinter with this, a brand new Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith) produced version of the demo track that was originally released on 7" only in Autumn last year.

                        "Everything Last Winter" is the debut album from Fields, and it features re-recorded versions of their singles "If You Fail We All Fail" and "Song For The Fields". It also contains some of the most visually arresting artwork to grace a musical release in recent times. In keeping with the tone of the rest of their work the band have eschewed hiding behind computer trickery and all other mod cons and chosen to work with a real human being, a pen and a pad of paper.

                        Hanging out with the Gallagher brothers has definitely rubbed off on Jet, as this title track from their second album proves. "Shine On" is an anthemic rock ballad with Bealtes-ey guitars and a gospel choir backing.

                        Crosby, Stills & Nash

                        Crosby Stills & Nash

                        If you know and love this all time classic already, then you may be tempted by the superior sound and artwork, or the four extra songs, three of which are previously unheard. One, their seemingly impromptu yet meltingly delivered cover of "Everybody's Talking" is worth the entrance fee on its own! If, on the other hand, you've never heard this music, think melodic, stoned, warm, groovy, daydream folk rock. It was an album which perfectly resonated with its times (late 60's) and you can still feel its glow, 35 years later. A total classic!

                        How to follow one of the greatest albums of recent years? More of the same, please! That's what Norway's Even Johansen serves up here, and no way should we complain. His music is gentle, folk-based and extremely melodic, but luxuriously produced with pedal-steel, banjo, trumpets and all sorts of electronic squiggles and pops. Even has the sweetest, dreamiest voice that's a mixture of weariness and wonderment, but it's his songwriting skills that impress. Overall not quite as strong as 2003's "On Your Side", you're still not likely to hear a better collection of tunes all year. Recommended!

                        No Hope In New Jersey

                        Steady Diet Of Decline

                        No Hope In New Jersey's emphatic debut album "Steady Diet Of Decline" sees the Manchester quartet come of age, with a maelstrom of devastating riffs and razor-sharp lyrics, and production courtesy of Chris Sheldon. 'We're not the most overtly macho band in the world like, say, Black Flag back in the day,' says Andy, 'but we play with the same abandon and disregard for current convention. And to my mind that's what you really want with a live band. Not this streamlined stuff that passes for punk rock.'

                        From grunge rock legends The Melvins, this 'best of' compiles five tracks from each of the three albums they recorded for Atlantic records in the mid 90s. Widely regarded as the band's best period, this 15 track collection is also an enhanced CD that includes three of the band's videos. It includes expanded packaging containing, liner notes & photographs and all for a nice cheap price too.

                        When Rick Wakeman replaced Tony Kaye on keyboards in 1971 the last piece was finally in place and Yes were soon to be regarded as amongst the premier progressive rock acts around. Surrounded by banks of instruments, Wakeman played organ, synths, Mellotron, piano and electric harpsichord alongside Anderson, Squire, Bruford and Howe and the first recordings by (what many believe to be) the definitive Yes line-up resulted in "Fragile". Four group tracks and five featuring each individual band member produced classic tracks like "Roundabout", "Heart Of The Sunrise" and "Long Distance Runaround".

                        FORMAT INFORMATION

                        CD Info: Newly remastered with restored Roger Dean artwork, this edition features two bonus tracks.

                        One of the most successful of the 70s progressive rock groups, Yes began their career with this adventurous debut album. Influenced by the explosion of new pyschedelic prog rock bands like Pink Floyd, Cream and the Nice (who weren't afraid to mix rock idioms with classical music) "Yes" was issued in November 1969 it featured Jon Anderson's distinctive vocals, Chris Squire's huge bass sound, Peter Banks' angular guitar and Tony Kaye's keyboards which were underpinned by Bruford's remarkable drumming that managed to be both complex and effortless. It was their first step on the path to prog rock success.

                        Aretha Franklin

                        Young Gifted And Black

                        Recorded over a seven-month period in 1970 and 1971, "Young Gifted And Black" captures Aretha Franklin at the peak of her artistic and commercial powers. A stirring, rock-solid release that holds its own with the singer's better-known albums, it also includes some eclectic song choices. Nestled against original, uptempo groovers like "Rock Steady," for example, is a soulful reading of the Beatles' "The Long and Winding Road." (Beatles sideman Billy Preston's signature organ playing is featured throughout the recording.)

                        Upon its release in January 1972, the album yielded four Top Ten singles on the R&B charts and two Top Ten singles on the pop charts. Franklin baffled some fans at the time by covering "Border Song (Holy Moses)," but the song, composed by a then-obscure team of Elton John and Bernie Taupin, landed at #5 on the R&B charts. Franklin's stirring cover of Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water," recorded during the same sessions but omitted from the initial release, appears on the reissue. Overall, "Young Gifted And Black" is one of the brightest releases in what would prove to be Franklin's most fertile, diverse, and productive period.

                        Vapor Trails

                        The long five year absence from the recording studios of one of prog-rock's biggest bands - Rush, is over. Neil Peart's tragic loss has taken time to overcome but his drum roll on the album's storming opening track "One Little Victory" announces that Rush are back to their best. There's a genuine energy and commitment to "Vapor Trails" that shows a will to make things work, to redefine themselves through their music and this album will be seen as one of the best of their later works.

                        Wicked jazz dance LP from '68 from Hammond maestro McDuff and Dave 'Fathead' Newman on sax and flute.

                        A vaguely disturbing concept album from an interesting new female vocalist, given to theatrics and inner meanings as she tries to engage in a dialogue with her dead father. As much Sheryl Crow as Tori Amos but with a penchant for the dramatic and the unsettling image.

                        One of the most brilliant drummers of his generation; Billy Cobham has recorded with some of the towering giants of jazz and fusion. His solo albums may be overshadowed by his work with John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra but this 1974 release is one of his best works. Strong compositions, beautifully played with George Duke, John Abercrombie and Randy Brecker all adding their skills to a superb album.

                        Spectrum

                        On 1973's "Spectrum", Cobham unleashed Jan Hammer and Tommy Bolin (later of Deep Purple) loose on his strongest fusion compositions yet. The results were epic in every sense of the word and respect for Cobham increased beyond that given to the worlds greatest drummer. This is brilliant powerhouse fusion and is as vital today as when it was recorded.
