The Lloyd McNeill Quartet ‎- Washington Suite 1970 ( ASHA Recording Co. Inc.)


Label : ASHA Recording Co. Inc.

Value :

One of the most beautiful albums ever recorded by DC flutist Lloyd McNeil – and one of the grooviest, too! Lloyd's work is always amazing – stretched-out, spiritual, and filled with life – but this time around, there's a definite groove to the record that's undeniable – an increased sense of rhythm, yet one that's still extremely creative, especially in the mellower moments – which are among some of the most compelling that McNeil ever recorded. The tunes were originally scored for a dance group, and feature a core combo with Lloyd on flute, some great Fender Rhodes from Eugene Rush, and sublime bass and drum patterns – mixed with some haunting added woodwinds, played by a combo that also features the legendary Andrew White. The whole record has a beautifully rhythmic quality, filled with throbbing, modal, soulful grooves – and tracks include "Home Rule", "City Triptych", "2504 Cliffborne Pl", "Just 71% Moor", and "Fountain In The Circle".

The Lloyd McNeill Quartet ‎– Asha 1969 (ASHA Recording Co. Inc.)


Label : ASHA Recording Co. Inc.

Value :

A seminal bit of spiritual jazz from the American scene – the first self-released album by flute player Lloyd McNeill, a tremendous little set that's filled with modal grooves and soaring sounds! McNeill's flute work alone is enough to make the record great – in a space that's somewhere right up there with Bobbi Humprhey or Roland Kirk for sheer soulfulness – but the rhythms of the record are sublime as well – killer grooves that come from the piano of Gene Russ, the bass of Steve Novosel, the percussion of Eric Gravatt, and Latin percussion of Paul Hawkins! The tunes all have a flowing, organic quality that's completely wonderful – extremely natural in approach, with a seductiveness that's made the set one of our favorites for years – a stone classic all the way through, with cuts that include "As A Matter Of Fact", "Asha", "St Margaret's Church", "Effervescence", "Warmth Of A Sunny Day", and "Two Third's Pleasure".

Ned Doheny ‎- Hard Candy 1976 (Columbia)


Label : Columbia

Value :

A seminal set from Ned Doheny – a lasting bit of California cool from the 70s, and a record that's every bit as refreshing as its image on the cover! The sound is tight, but never too slick – well-crafted songwriting with equally well-crafted production and studio execution – but somehow in a space that's far from the charts, too – which makes the whole thing a really great discovery in music! Ned Doheny's got a way of hitting an AOR vibe, but holding into more personal elements too – and the vocals glide along with the music with the same charming vibe.By Dusty

Chilly - For Your Love 1979 (Polydor)

Label : Polydor

Value :

Chilly was a popular German Euro disco/rock band at the end of the 1970s and the beginning of the 1980s. Their most famous songs include hits like "Friday On My Mind",'Johnny Loves Jenny', 'Come to L.A.', 'Simply a Love Song', 'For Your Love' and 'Get Up And Move'.
The Song "For Your Love" was originally written by Graham Gouldman (later of 10cc fame) and performed by the Yardbirds in 1965. Chilly's version was produced by the composer and author Bernt Moehrle, who created with this song a new standard in Disco music in the late 70s and early 80s. His version was used and remixed among others by DJ Hell on the album Munich Machine. It was also re-released in 2006 by the French label D-Classics in an edited version called "4 Love" made by Dylan Petit and in 2011 by Chocolate Puma feat. Colonel Red.
