The first ever compilation of Indonesian psychedelia from AKA is a great one – fuzzy prog and funk steeped jams that the group tore up throughout the 70s – as cool as any single artist global rock compilations we've seen in quite a while! The group formed in Surabaya, East Java and went on to record a slew of albums throughout the 70s, but never really busted out big in it's time. Now's a great time for the world to catch up! They sing in English, and the songs are really exciting, changing tempos as they roll along incredibly, with a sound built around drums, bass, keys and guitars. Lead singer and keyboard player shines pretty brightly, but each group member sings and kills it in their own realms. Amazing! Includes "Do What You Like", "Glenmore", "Reflection", "We've Gotta Work It Out". "Cruel Side", "Groovy", "Mr Bull Doc", "Shake Me", "Crazy Joe", "Open Doors", "Sky Rider" and the CD bonus track "AKA Untuk Mu". 15 in all. (Limited edition.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A wonderful bit of lost grooviness from the 60s! Arranger Mark Wirtz, a youngish Brit easy composer, teamed up with Keith West and Steve Howe of the group Tomorrow – and came up with a sparkling set of tracks that mixed easy instrumental grooves with more hard swinging 60s Brit pop. The ... CD
