Sound Of A Drum

LP (Item 8837) Marlin, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

One of the better albums of funky soul by percussionist Ralph MacDonald – probably because the groove's a bit more jazzy and tight, with less of the silliness of his other albums. The tracks feature a range of great jazz funk players – including Bob James, Eric Gale, Richard Tee, and Chuck Rainey – but the main strength is MacDonald's funky work on conga. The album features the classic "Jam On The Groove", a killer break cut from the old days, as well as a nice version of "Mister Magic", plus "Calypso Breakdown", "Sound Of A Drum", and "Where Is The Love". (Cover has some wear, and owner stamp, a spot of price sticker residue.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Polydor, 1977. Very Good Gatefold
One of Roy Ayers' best-remembered albums of the 70s – a sublime blend of mellow numbers and some of his more club-oriented grooves of the time – all wrapped together with a genius that we can only describe as Ayers-like!

Buddah, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold
A classic album by this righteous soul collective – and one that shows them taking a strong step away from their work at RCA with Harvey Fuqua.
