SOUL JAZZ RECORDS
Available in all good retail and internet stores next week.
Soul Jazz Records are reissuing this seminal Roy Ayers album, originally released on Roy Ayers own independent Uno Melodic label in 1983. A rare groove classic!
The album is one of Ayers’ deepest releases stylistically, spanning everything from Fela Kuti-Afrobeat to seminal 80s boogie funk. The album includes the super-dark ‘Chicago’, much loved by Moodyman, Theo Parrish and other Detroit minimalists.
Recorded around the time of other seminal Roy Ayers productions such as ‘Eighties Ladies’ and ‘Sylvia Striplin’, this really is as good as it gets.
Remastered from the original master tapes, the CD comes in Soul Jazz Records mini-box-pack edition with limited edition postcards. The vinyl edition comes for the first time ever on super-loud, super-heavyweight gatefold-sleeve double vinyl (making it better than the original!).
