Without a doubt, the best DOO WOP band in the whole of Spain andone of the best in Europe. They've been around longer than anyone, working hard andwriting glorious songs with delicious harmonies. AN ABSOLUTE MUST!!!
This 1962 recording is one of the prize items of the free/jazz movement as it flowered in California. It teams flutist Prince Lasha and alto saxophonist Sonny Simmons, who cowrote all the songs and play with an esprit de duo that reflects their long/term partnership. Lasha, who also played saxophone, was a childhood friend of Ornette Coleman and became part of his circle in Los Angeles. Simmons, a Louisiana native who grew up in Oakland, came under Coleman's influence while honing his own terse, lyrically heated style.

Cecil Bustamente Campbell, better known around the world as Prince Buster, was one of the most important figures in the development of ska - and, ultimately, reggae - music. Not just an innovator, he's also one of the more distinct and distinguished voices in the history of Jamaican popular music. I Feel The Spirit is his very first long player - and was a hit both at home in Kingston, and in the West Indian clubs of London, where it would help to inspire the late 70s/early 80s 2-Tone movement.
