LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 6

One of the grooviest records ever recorded – and pretty darn rare, too! The Moon People – aka Los Astronautas – were a Latin Soul studio band who played behind some of the other killer recordings on the Speed Label. They're best known for their sock-boogaloo instrumental "Land Of Love" – a stone jammer which kicks off the album – and their forte is blending together Latin rhythms, soul instrumentation, and kind of a mod 60s easy production style, handled here by maestro Morty Craft. The album's got a really really weird feel – part Latin Soul, part 60s soundtrack – almost as if Joe Cuba and Quincy Jones were hanging out together! Titles include "Land Of Love", "Morty's Harem", "Indian Soul", "Happy Soul", "Revolt", and "Last Train To Clarksville".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Chico O'Farrill did the arrangements, and the record chops along nicely with some very funky tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Finders Keepers (UK), 1976. New Copy
Strange and incredible mid 70s atmospherics from Jean-Pierre Massiera – dark atmospherics that roll from heady psych rock to cerebral funk and proggy dynamics – taken to a far deeper dimension thanks to Massiera's hypnotic use of tape samples and layered vocal errata! It's amazing how ... LP, Vinyl record album
