Afro rock - music dewolfe


An album that is seen on every library wants list and is definitely well worthy of such an accolade. Composed by P. Reno and L. Vecchio, we are treated to ten tracks of pounding, funky afro-influenced rock and, to be honest, its a great album from start to finish and be left on the turntable to run from start to finish. Highlights would have to be the ultra-heavy drums and horns-a-plenty of "Megaton" and the extended workout of "Green Hell" that is more afro-jazz-rock in its styling, especially in the scoring of the flute and horn solos.

The vintage library music is pure gold, especially to those who appreciate it. Lots of other great stuff too. It's really a valiant public service to make available what would otherwise be lost to history. Thanks for the sharing and the effort expended.

I do enjoy most of the KPM- and library recordings, but a lot of them sounds quite faceless.
But this one really doesn't, every track is brilliant.
Thanks a lot!

jon wodtz said...

hey man you're blog looks really great! there's a few here I can't get anywhere else-"jazz rock", a KPM by John Cameron would be fabulous indeed!
I can understand about getting miffed about people not leaving comments-I think they may not know what to write or wonder what they have to offer in the face of so much great music being offered-also, there may be the fear of being hunted down by some suit and sunglass wearing 'justice monkeys'-just a thought.
But i will offer a great big THANK YOU to the power of ten to make up for it all!
