Kilowatt

LP (Item 16299) De-Lite, 1978 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

Not as hard and funky as the early stuff – with that disco sound that was dominating the De-Lite imprint at the time – but also not too bad, as the groove is in a fast funk mode, with plenty of real instrumentation, in that tight east coast studio mode of the mid 70s. Includes their "Kay-Gee's Theme Song", plus "Fat Daddy", "Celestial Vibrations", "Space Disco", and 2 versions of the title track "Kilowatt". (Cover has a gold promo stamp.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Dream World
De-Lite, 1978. Very Good+
A tasty little disco album that's a lot better than you might think!

Hamp!
Clef, Mid 50s. Very Good+

This one's a nice laid-back bit of jazz, with long tracks that let all the players – Hamp, Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, and Buddy Rich – ... LP, Vinyl record album
