Odetta - Odetta Sings 1970 (Polydor)

Label : Polydor

Value :

By the time Odetta Holmes recorded Southern Soul classic Odetta Sings in 1970, she'd already released a dizzying array of albums over a 13-year career. Initially a rhythm and blues artist, she played a key role in the American folk revival of the 1960s and became a leading figure in the civil rights movement. While Odetta Sings included some softly spun fusions of folk and soul (see her fabulous covers of Paul McCartney's "Every Night" and James Taylor's bluesy "Lo and Behold") and string-drenched ballads, for the most part it was an impassioned and upbeat affair, containing such classics as "Mama Told Me Not To Come", "Hit and Miss" and "Movin' It On". In hindsight, it's one of the strongest soul albums of all time.

Guy Boyer ‎– Ballade Pour Un Vibra 1971 (Neuilly)


Label : Neuilly

Value :

On demand jazz library album on the cult french label Neuilly. Really pleasant album with Guy Boyer on vibes and arrangement. Includes the deep modal jazz tunes like "Vibra conceptions", "Jazz on vibes" or the on fast paced "Bongos and Sound" with brilliant drum breaks and killer vibes solo. This is the Creasound version of the same release on Neuilly called "Ballade pour un Vibra" with one extra track.

Piotr Figiel ‎- Piotr 1971 (Pronit)


Label : Pronit

Value :

Polish composer, arranger, vocalist and keyboardist Piotr FIGIEL (1940.04.13 - 2011.12.22) is probably best known for composing music for other artists, movies, TV, radio and theatrical plays. But in the 1960's he was an active musician himself, and toured Scandinavia with The Clivers. Later he would concentrate on studio work, as a collaborator with other artists in one capacity or another or for recording material for a wide variety of purposes.

Figiel also recorded and released a couple of solo albums: Piotr in 1971 (also known as Organ Hammondy) and Music in 1976. Of these two productions it's the former that will be of interest to fans of progressive rock, especially if you have a soft touch for jazzrock and fusion. The latter appears to be more of a purebred pop production, and from some descriptions apparently more of a compilation in spirit, but issued under Figiel's name. .
