This is an unthemed trade, so no need to worry about anything like that. The start date for the next one (which will be themed) will be January 18th at the earliest.
Sweet! So that means I'm sending to you Bulldog, right?

Yeah, but I won't be able to download it 'til sometime next week, as I don't have uploading or downloading facilities. Plus I'm pretty ill at the minute, and not really in the state to listen to any music. You and Story can swap in the mean time if you like.

Okay, I'm a little ahead of the curve here but here goes.

NumberNine sent me:
John Cale & Terry Riley - Church of Anthrax (1971)



First impressions of this album were interesting. I wasn't sure what to think really. All I knew after I finished it was that it was certainly eclectic and definitely not cohesive as an album. But god, when that first bass riff hit to open the record with the title track, I was amazed. And then, when the saxophone came in on top of a looped drum track and that murky bass, a bone tingling chill went down my spine as I recalled the foreboding sound of Bitches Brew and the Mahavishnu Orchestra's The Inner Mounting Flame. After hearing that first song, I was sure that this was going to be yet another great dark Jazz fusion record from the early seventies, on par even with Birds of Fire, one of my ten favorite records ever. But then came the ringing and distant piano chords of the second track, "The Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles" and I literally did a double take. The two tracks are played with very similar instrumentation, but sound completely different. To put it in perspective, this could have very well been the opening to Springsteen's "Meeting Across the River" from Born to Run.

The next track is a female sung folk song. And the next a joyous piano romp to put Elton John to shame!

What! I refuse to accept this rampant eclecticism! Oh but the songwriting is just too good! And the production so real! Oh what to do, what to do... Maybe ten more listens will reveal the true merits of this album.

For now, a solid 7.5/10


Thanks NumberNine!

Schizotypic sent me this one...

Jade - In Pursuit


This is the best I could do with album art because apparently, this is quite a rare album!

Start with the Children - Just starting the album and knowing how relatively unknown this album seems to be, I'm already intrigued by the quality of the music. Just this song alone seems to be worth the price of entry. It immediately catches my interest in the album. From the horns and guitars to Jade's voice, it is a very solid opener.

Music Slave - Very 70's at the start. Very 70's-ish guitars. Not as solid as the first track, but still a good song. Very danceable.

Home Orpheus - I'm really liking this song. Slow and...well...soulful. I'm loving the chilled out guitars. I'm noticing how intricate Jade is and how all the instruments compliment each other so nicely. The piano is subtle until it needs to be. Again, I am totally confused that Jade seems to be relatively unknown.

Heaven Or Hell You Got To Choose - Starts off like it might be another slower song, but picks up quickly. Copious use of the cowbell, and another very 70's type song imo. Another danceable track.

The World is a Merri-Go Round - Solid track, but nothing too groundbreaking. After this song and the few that precede it, I can safely say a fan of 70's soul would probably love this album.

Tomorrow May Be Too Late - Starting to sound a bit the same as some of the other tracks (just in style - not necessarily the music itself). Solid, but easily forgettable.

Evil Ways - Well, well...a Santana cover. Pretty solid cover, too. And refreshing.

Little Jam No. 1 - Instrumental, and exaclty as the title implies. I love jam tracks, and this one is really good. A great way to close the album!

Overall, a really good soul album. As I mentioned, a fan of 70's soul/funk would love this album. Since I've never really tried to get into soul this was a relatively new experience for me. I like it and wouldn't mind getting into it more...especially if these guys are the ones that didn't get famous. Makes me wonder what else is out there. Standout tracks for me: Start With the Children, Home Orpheus, and Little Jam No. 1.

Overall, 7/10
