    FUNKADELIC

    Finest

    Vergriffen und nicht wiederaufgelegt seit 1997 // Doppel-LP Set mit OBI-Papierband, limitiert auf 1.000 Stück // Sechzehn ganz besondere Tracks inklusive aller Hits // FUNKADELIC auf dem Zenit ihrer Karriere (1970-1976) * Tidal Waves Music präsentiert mit Stolz FUNKADELICS "Finest"! Compilations sind nicht einfach zu erstellen - noch schwieriger ist es, sie genau richtig hin zu bekommen. "Finest" ist eine dieser Compilations, die wie die Faust aufs Auge trifft. Diese Veröffentlichung beinhaltet die Arbeit George Clintons und seiner Crew auf dem Höhepunkt ihrer Karriere und ihre meistbeachteten Werke. Sechzehn Songs sind mit Bedacht aus sechs Jahren (1970-1976) ausgewählt worden: "Finest" ist die wohl beste Kollektion von Songs aus dieser Ära, in der sich Klassiker mit oft überhörten Songs den Platz auf der Platte teilen. Die Tracks "I Got a Thing" und "I Wanna Know if It's Good to You" sind Musterexemplare für den warmen, funkigen Sound der früheren Jahre, während die Band bei den ausgewählten Songs vom klassischen "Maggot Brain" Album wirklich ihren Stil gefunden hatte. So vereint diese Zusammenstellung einige der besten Funknummern der 70er Jahre, unter anderem "Hit It and Quit It," "You and Your Folks, Me and My Folks," "Loose Booty," "Cosmic Slop," "Red Hot Mama," und "Get Off Your Ass and Jam."

    PHAROAH SANDERS, IDRIS MUHAMMAD

    Africa

    [engl] Tidal Waves Music now proudly presents: the official reissue of this fantastic album, back available on vinyl for the first time since 1987. Available as a deluxe 180g 2XLP set, with TWO bonus tracks from the same session that were not featured on the original vinyl release. This album is limited to 500 copies worldwide and comes with an obi strip + liner notes by American jazz critic & author Kevin Whitehead. Pharoah `Farrell' Sanders (born 1940) is a leading figure in the world of jazz and one of the last living legends with connections to players like Sun Ra and John Coltrane. His tenor saxophone playing has earned him royal status amongst free jazz players, critics and collectors. On "Africa" from 1987 Sanders plays with an all-star line-up consisting of Idris Muhammad, John Hicks and Curtis Lundy. Muhammad brings his trademark tight sense of timekeeping, but with a looseness that we love - and Lundy's warm soulful bass does more than enough to give the set a sound bottom- all this while Hick's free lyrical piano works nicely with Sander's spiritual horn. The brilliant `Africa sessions' features the quartet at their best...soulful but also searching for a strong groove at the same time. The music here is less ornamented than on most of Sanders' studio recordings, where sextets, septets or larger lineups have been the norm, but this brilliant effort here remains every bit as compelling. Pharoah and his crew play with the utmost sensitivity and give a demonstration that shows us the full extent of their skills.
