I really think that Soul Jazz are a label of quality, a bunch of
music fans releasing music for other music fans. The Golden Rule as
applied to commerce?
At the radio station we buy (yes, buy with money) every single Soul Jazz
release we can get our hands on. I can't say we do that about any other
label. But it doesn't matter if the compilation is on obscure funk or Studio
One reggae, it's always done with the most care and quality.

University of Puerto Rico_ is his most avant-garde, & really just
unbelievably flipped out & awesome.
Everything he did from about '70-'78 is great, Coltrane-esque,
form-blasting Latin jazz of the highest order; _Sentido_, _Unfinished
Masterpiece_, _Vamonos pa'l Monte_, the Harlem River Drive album--
more unvarnished greatness than you can shake a stick at.
"Naturally, the common people don't want war, but after all, it is
the leaders of a country who determine the policy and it is always a
simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a
fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship.
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of
the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they
are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism
and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every

I really meant to pick up that Chicano Power Latin Rock thingy.
I take it it was all of that and more ?
- STONE BREATH
Mostly acoustic medieval influenced folk stuff from the wyrd folk
geezer and crew.
Deep space drones from the then newly 2 piece electronic band
ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN Crocodiles
First lp by liverpool nouveau psych types. Remastering noticeably
improves the sound.
Far easier to hear Will Sergeant's minimalist guitar stylings now.
plus several extra tracks including the '81 live ep with Do It Clean
HELDON Un Reve Sans Consequence Speciale
Very dark Red era Crimson like instrumentals played by French
TIM HARDIN Hang onto a Dream
The 2cd Verve compi. I was surprised by the amount of r'n'b in the
sound. And by his voice, I'm reminded of Roland Gift for some reason
but can see how well he would have fitted with Can. I wonder if the
collaboration was recorded
HERBIE HANCOCK Crossings
Supposedly most 'out' of the Mwandishi era stuff. The liner notes
claim they were infecdted by the influence of Sun Ra, doesn't quite
have the techno tropical storm elements of Sextant but it sho is fine
TANGERINE DREAM Electronic meditation
Sole lp by this line up. Deep space music made with cellos?
AGITATION FREE 2nd
Instrumental stuff by German impro psych band. This gets compared to
the Grateful Dead which I don't think is really too exact.
The vocals on the last couple of tracks seem to havve been where
David Tibet got his schtick from
Recent drone rock psych stuff the instrumental sections are pretty
DUNCAN BROWNE Give me Take You
Orchestral folkie type stuff
ZOMBIES Odessey And Oracle
The ex Action as a Uk Grateful DEad?
CURTIS MAYFIELD roots
Surprisingly spacey stuff from soul legend.
especially where the moog interacts with his guitar
I think Hendrix picked up a few elements of his style didn't he?
LA REVOLUTION DE EMILIANO ZAPATA
Surprisingly garagey sounding stuff from '72 mexico.
I find both these and the canadian Bent Wind seem to take a near brit
invasion influence and stretch out the guitar etc a bit.
Dashed heavy in places methinks
RANDY HOLDEN population II
the archetypal stoner lp?
as the title impliers the band consists of 2 people. Randy n guitar
amnd the ex Kak drummer.
SCIENTIST Rids The World Of The Curse Of The Vampires
Surprisingly early reggae/ska sound to this lp. Still really
THE FUGS 2nd lp
I thought this band was notoriously inept musically. This sounds like
pretty well played garagey bluesy stuff with intelligently dumb
lyrics over it. Most reccommended. I sjhoulda had this years back.
Shanme that the later stuff is only available in majorly expensive
form on Rhino Handmade
This is the blast First version of the '81 Alan Vega/Martin Rev lp
with a different sleeve plus the DReam Baby Dream/Radiation single
plus some '75 demos.
I think this is awesome, I think I used to listen to the vynil much
more than the first one.
In '75 Vega's voice was different or is it the equipment?
Rev seems to have much the same style but more primitive equipment
Is this the last lp that Robert Wyatt cut before the accident?
I love the long instrumental passages & Signed Curtain has a set of
very surreal lyrics
KIng TUBBY dub like dirt
compilation of osbourne Ruddock's '75 -'78 productions.
most heavy, most good
- I think Alan Vega's voice has dropped about 3 octaves over the years....today's version bearing hardly any resemblance to the 70's one.
Saw them in 01 at the then fairly new Knitting Factory in Los Angeles...there's still nothing quite seeing a band who thinks their time is long gone come out and see a bunch of kids waving lps and how excited they get over it:)
