Revelation

LP (Item 22889) Mercury, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

One of the fine fine albums of spacey keyboard funk that Charles cut for the Mercury label during the late 70s. Earland starts with a Herbie Hancock approach – and no surprise, he's got Paul Jackson and Harvey Mason in the group – but then he changes the groove to show off more of his funky soul jazz roots, and comes up with a sound that has a bit of a Mizell touch, with a nice soulful groove, still underpinned by some great jazzy conceptions. Titles include a cover of a Stevie Wonder's "I Wish", plus "Betty Boop", "Singing A Song For You", "Shining Bright", and "Revelation". (Cover has a cutout hole & some light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Great Guitar Sounds
Mercury/Wing, Mid 50s/1959. Very Good
A great 50s session from guitarist Bill Harris – known for his work in The Clovers, but a great jazz player as well! The sound here is really unique – very different than even his other albums of the time – in that Bill is playing solo acoustic guitar, in a style that's almost ... LP, Vinyl record album
