Seminal work from the South American scene at the end of the 60s – by a key group who managed to forge a host of styles into their own unique sound! Traffic Sound were contemporaries of groups like Black Sugar, We All Together, Telegraph Ave, and some of the other leading lights of the Peruvian scene – and like those acts, they had a really fresh style that took influences from up north and transformed them with a really unusual sense of interpretation. The work on the set is certainly psychedelic and progressive at its core – but the group are also clearly bringing in styles from Latin, soul, and the growing jazz rock movement – resulting in some surprisingly complicated numbers that groove nicely at the best moments, and which never fail to delight throughout! The CD features a total of 18 tracks in all – with titles that include "You Got To Be Sure", "La Camita", "Survival", "Solos", "Chicama Way", "Suavecito", "Lux", "El Gusano", "Tibet's Suzettes", "Inca Snow", and "Sky Pilot".

Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention —
One Size Fits All ... CD DiscReet/Hip-O, 1975. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Frank Zappa's got some fantastic fusion touches on this sweet little set from the 70s – thanks to keyboards and a bit of vocals from George Duke, heavy drums from Chester Thompson, and even some brief help from Johnny Guitar Watson! The set's still got a very Zappa-esque feel, but it's clear he's also letting Duke stretch his wings a bit too as there's parts of the record that almost echo the style of some of George's more far-out recordings for MPS. The balance is great – and one that makes the album a lot more soulful at points than we're used to hearing from Zappa. Titles include "Florentine Pogen", "Can't Afford No Shoes", "Inca Roads", "Po-Jama People", "Evelyn A Modified Dog", and "San Ber'Dino". CD
