No much need for an introduction. “Asi es la vida” & “Rock me to the music” are the ones often hyped, but there is more to this LP than those 2 tracks. Pressed in 200 copies and not what you could call a hit at the time. Great musicians and great music. ………….
“Holy grail” collectable jazzfunk vocal lp . Ultra rare local swedish band limited to 200 press way back in 1973 on independent “Hendrix ” label , includes the wicked dancefloor vocal funk cut “Rock me To The Music” and the awesome latin jazzfunk workout “Asi Esa La Vida”. also includes some lovely cool jazzfunk vocal cuts , kinda reminds me of Jon Lucien on some of the more mellow tracks. Long been a favourite on wants lists worldwide , so here’s you chance to hear it! what a record awesome!… A lovely addition to your collection and a wise investment to!…
Dustygroove A weird name, but a great groove — served up here in the one and only album from this obscure Swedish combo! The group have a style that borrows heavily from styles of the jazz/rock generation — but which also comes across with a fair bit of soul as well — a style that might be at home in the Fantasy Records scene of the 70s, but with a slightly rougher edge overall. Lyrics are in English, but the instrumentation is what sends this album over the top — a jazzy blend of Hammond, flute, sax, trumpet, and nicely romping rhythms — often augmented by some fuller backings, but never too much to get in the way. The flute’s an especially nice touch, and often snakes through the tunes with a mind of its own — offsetting the vocals, and further complicating the tunes. Titles include “Asi Es La Vida”, “Iki Gift Laf”, “I’ll Never Find Another”, “Annabella”, “Love Is”, “Mercedes Bus”, “Without Your Love”, “It Didn’t Do You Good”, and “Why”.
