This is a great funky version of the jj cale classic. Groovy and sexy as can be.
22 Apr 05 ·tulipthe: hi, thats a great track. Its from the first LP "Asha
Puthli". Have u heard the song "Space Talk" from her album ' The Devil is Loose' also a fantastic track. btw, the year for 'Right down here " is 1974 way ahead of its time,like most of her music.
Slow beaty groove, deep, dramatic, emotive. This obscure French library tune was recorded in early 70s for an avant-guard French version of Shakespeare's 'Macbeth', and originally released on a very limited "Musique pour l'Image" 7-inch.
available on CD - Le Jazzbeat Vol 1 (Jazzman (UK))
Trumpet, strings & a subtle jangly sound begin this song in a way that suggests a tale of heartbreak, as Burt Bacharach can do it. Then piano and wordless female vocals join, in a chorus that seems to say love or redemption is going to come. And this is done in a Todd Rundgren way, as on his Something/Anything album. Then it repeats, and you're redeemed again. Two winsome influences are combined in this sound library recording for a real slice of heaven.
Meeeeoooow!! Geez... This song is mad-mad-mad! Everone makes a big deal about E.V.A., but for my money, this is the track on the album that makes the most of the MOOG. It's just soo wild! It's like somebody gave The Shadows a couple of Mini Moogs and they just jacked-in with this crazy spy-blues groove! People like Perrey & Gershon Kingsley did more with those instruments in the first few years of their existence than anyone else did in the 30 years following.... Barbaric!!
08 Nov 05 ·Festy: This track never really stood out for me the first few times I heard it. It wasn't that I didn't like it, but, for the life of me, I can't work out how I overlooked it for so long. It is absolutely brilliant. You can't help but feel the pleasure of the song, which, from start to finish, is a relentless celebration for the ears. Recent, cheap imitation cover versions do it little justice.
