✨✧ Chick CoreaFriends ... LP
Polydor, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock

Chick CoreaMad Hatter ... LP
Polydor, 1977. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A goofy cover, and a tribute to Alice In Wonderland, but a nice little record – one that has Chick Corea playing a wide variety of keyboards next to acoustic piano – coming up with a sound that's sometimes cosmic, sometimes spacious, but always a lot more creative than most of his ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
