Closer To It!

LP (Item 30300) RCA, 1973 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

Soaring organ work from Brian Auger's Oblivion Express – and arguably the greatest album he ever cut with this post-Trinity group! The sound here is clean and lean – with Brian himself on a mix of organ, piano, and moog – really hitting a nice jazz funk mode that drops some of the bluesier touches of earlier years, and goes for a 70s-styled sound that we really like a lot – and which even makes us like the vocals a bit more than usual! Backings are mostly spare bass, drums, and percussion – and the set's got a great remake of "Inner City Blues", plus the spacey original "Light On The Path", a nice cover of "Compared To What", plus "Whenever You're Ready" and "Voices Of Other Times". (Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Prestige, 1973. Very Good+
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones!

Along Comes Cal
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Great stuff – and very very groovy! Cal cut this record for Verve during the height of his swinging 60s Latin years – and he's working here with arranger Chico O'Farrill, who at the time, was perfectly suited for Cal's short, jaunty approach to a groove! The album's filled with nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
