Originally released in 1975 on the Birds Nest label, the sole album by boogie stompers AGNES STRANGE is an obscure hard rock gem that needed to be rediscovered. Formed in Southampton, UK in the mid 70's by Alan Green (bass), Dave Rodwell (drums), and John Westwood (guitar, vocals), AGNES STRANGE failed to reach any glory or fame, but their legacy made of heavy rock riffings, raw leads and tough attitude, with a spacey "Hawkwind-esque" touch here and there, helped them reach cult status amongst 70's rock fanatics. Limited to 500 copies on 180 gram LP.
Third album by Turkish psychedelic singer Edip Akbayram, originally released in 1982. This later 3rd album really ramps up the silly synthesizers. You'll hear whooshy 80s Rolands, vocals run through a harmonizer, and tons of totally tubular bass popping, and it all makes it darned easy to hear just where the western intros and breaks stop. Ever wish Knight Rider's Kitt could drive to Istanbul? Take a ride on cheesy synthesizers with Edip at the wheel! Remastered sound, with insert.
Produced by The Faces' Ronnie Lane and taped in London's Marquee Studios, this lost Afro-funk classic was originally released in North America only in August 1972, and makes its CD debut here. Consisting of Ghanaian percussionist Speedy Acquaye (who also worked with The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart and many others), Nigerian bassist Biddy Wright (a member of the legendary Blo), Jamaican conga drummer Jeff Whittaker and London-based guitarist Peter Andrews, the quartet delivers a hard-hitting, irresistibly funky blend of rock and funk that's sure to appeal to beat-diggers everywhere.
