Gaston lp "My queen"
Hotlanta records 1978.
Ahh!!! i love this record!!! All start with this strange "esoteric" cover??? Personally, i was so exiting and surprising when i have seen for the first time this lp, i wonder wich kind of music is possible behind this cover, is it psychedelic, progressive rock or experimental??? But not! this is funky, jazzy, soul, weird, black, deep...
This little gem is the first lp from this obscure creative and trully cosmic black combo pretilly called "Gaston", this band was based in the Atlanta area, their sound is unsual, they are definitely influenced by the P-funk, but maybe more by the Mizell Brothers sound, they use a large selection of Mizell's favorite instruments like the arp string ensemble, the moog synth, the flute, the Q Tron electro Harmonix bass effect but also the latin percussions, fuzz guitar... The lead and background vocals are just irresistibles, sometimes deep, sometimes freak, always in the right tune...
One of my favorite track is the killer "Clap song", a long and hypnotic instrumental disco jam session, a real dancefloor winner!!! But this lp is consistant from start to finish, if you like atypic music, it's for you!!
Oh, i have to speak about the sound quality too, it's just incredible for a little independent release, the bass and the beat are fat, the trebbles and mediums are clear, the mix is not over compressed, a top production for an excellent band!!!
Magnificent choo choo
Love and affection

Boo and the Tru-Tones - Show the world 1974
Great record from Trinidad, West Indies, their music is influenced by different black music movements like soul, funk, reggae with, off course, the light and fresh carribean touch.
Just listen and enjoy...

THE NEW SOUNDS - Having you around
Turbo records- TU 7002
This rare lp is an amazing raw and deep soul experience, a really unique and idiosyncratic album, the sound is dirty and it sounds over compressed because the mastering wasn't done quite right, the drums are loud and the lead vocals gives a truly deep atmosphere to this gem!!
The New Sounds group cames from Virginia and released this lp on the legendary Turbo records based in New Jersey, every tracks are their own compositions. The cover is also unsual for a soul lp. One of my favourite crossover soul lp!!!
