Warner/Minky, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic album of steel band grooving – a sound that made a surprising crossover in the American soul market in the early 70s! This album's one of the most famous of the genre – a session that was originally produced by Van Dyke Parks for Warner Brothers, and which has a nice blend of Caribbean and American soul styles. From our end, the highlight seems to be a cover of "I Want You Back", a cool groover that's done in a nice jangly way that works well with the steel drums. Other tracks include "Come To The Sunshine", a wonderful Van Dyke Parks composition that actually seems to be mixed here with some bits of the original recording – plus "Ride On Sammy", "Aquarium", "Sabre Dance", and an insane version of The Kinks' "Apeman".
