Shape Of Things To Come

LP (Item 51023) CTI/A&M, 1968 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

Excellent funky George Benson – mellow grooving, never too over the top, but with a fantastic mellow groove that really points the way ahead to the CTI sound of the 70s! We'd dare say that this is Benson's best from the early solo years of the late 60s – and the record's got a groove that's at once complicated and appealingly funky! No wonder too, since he's got Idris Muhammad helping him out, working under his pre-conversion name of Leo Morris, plus Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Richard Davis, Johnny Pacheco and others. Titles include "Footin It", "Face It Boy, It's Over", "Shape Of Things To Come", and "Shape Of Things That Are & Were". (Original white label promo – nice and heavy, in in the cool matte gatefold, which has a promo stamp.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Black Whip (original pressing)
Prestige, 1973. Very Good+
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones!
