Vinyl LP, Gatefold
Released:1982

More loot from the VJ L.A. Record Crawl.  This Bob James lp certainly shows its early 80s vintage with the drum programming and synth presence but the drumming is funky, the synths are squishy and the basslines are PHAT!  Think soundtrack to Miami Vice or those awesome/awful Golan-Globus VHS action movies involving cocaine shipments by speedboat, and perhaps ninjas.

LISTEN: 

Bob James – Janus [1982]

Gabor Szabo And The California Dreamers ‎– Wind, Sky And Diamonds

Gypsy guitar coupled with tasty sitar accents and Mamas & Papas-type vocal harmonies?  Yes please!
Observation: L.A. is  a city with a healthy appreciation for all things Gabor Szabo.  3 more GS albums were dug out last weekend.  This minty VG++ copy (cutout) adds to the ever-growing collection of orange and black.  Only one missing now,   his debut on Impulse!  It will be mine.  At this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if I find it on my next L.A. dig.

BOOM!  My most sought-after CTI title has been secured, courtesty of Amoeba Records and the VJ L.A. Record Crawl.  Listen to the opening title track. If you dig dirty jazz-funk, your ears will tell you why I’ve been chasing this platter for awhile, that album cover will illustrate the rest. Beast-mode, never reissued.

Back from L.A. Buncha new friends, 43 records deeper.  Many drinks, many smokes, many fish tacos. There are stories to tell and sides to spin, so I’ll spin the records while the dust settles. The stories will sort themselves out. Every record has a storyI’ve got 43
Good to be back home.
