LP (Item 7718) Polydor, Late 60s/1974 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

US collection of work by Brian Auger from the late 60s – released on Polygram, most likely to cash in on the fame he was having with the Oblivion Express group. Not that that fame was that great, though – and frankly, we always like this stuff a lot better, as Brian's funky organ is leaner and meaner, and the R&B influences are a lot closer to the core. The record features some groovy remakes – like a wonderfully baroque-yet-funky version of "A Day In The Life", a moody version of Wes Montgomery's "Bumpin On Sunset", and a crazy 7 minute version of Donovan's "Season Of The Witch" that turns the track into a slow grooving dancefloor number!

One of the few albums ever cut by saxophonist Harold Alexander – and a nice little live date that has the leader really stretching out on soprano sax and flute!
