Stray Cat Rock – Sex Hunter/Furyo Syojo Mako

CD (Item 467084) Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 12

Freaky fuzzy grooves from two obscure Nikkatsu movies – both of them scored by So Kaburagi in a great blend of heavy drums and tripped-out guitar – with lots of funky moments throughout! The music here almost outdoes some of the best psyche-inspired soundtracks from the US and Europe in the late 60s – and like some of the best of those, Kaburagi brings in some slight jazz undercurrents as well – softening things briefly in a few romantic moments with a saxophone, but mostly relying on fuzzy guitar, go-go drums, and a bit of organ to keep most of the tunes going. A few numbers feature larger backings, and from what we can tell, most of the work here is instrumental only – a whopping 28 tracks in all, with all titles and notes in Japanese!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
One of Billy Paul's greatest albums ever – or perhaps the greatest! The record is an amazing blend of soul, jazz, and a soaring sense of spiritualism that's not only rare for Billy Paul – but which makes the record sound different than any other Philly International LP from the time! ... CD

Prestige (Germany), 1962. New Copy
The brain trust of soul jazz in the early 60s – led by tenorist Gene Ammons on both albums! Soul Summit Volume one features Ammons and Sonny Stitt on tenor, plus Jack McDuff on Hammond – a definite soul summit for the time – with 3 top-shelf players in the lead, all getting ... CD
