Blow It Out was among Tom Scott's best selling albums of the 1970s. The only thing that I can say about this album is OUTSTANDING! When Tom first put his album out,(77-78) the track "Shadows" put this album in the spot light. "Dream Lady" soon followed. Tom had done other things before "Blow it Out" but they didn't match this one album.
Nasser Bouzida a.k.a 'The Bongolian' releases his third album 'Outer Bongolia' on Monday 5th November 2007. This is Nasser in his element as he embarks on a psychedelic musical trip to the outer regions of the Funk galaxy, taking in spaced-out heavy Bongo rhythms and Latin Soul along the way – all 100% Original Dancefloor Rhythms. (Instruments featured include the Hammond, Bongos, Synthesisers, Vibes.) Written, arranged, performed and produced entirely by Nasser at his Ramshackle Studios on analogue 8 track, the album was mixed by Nick Terry (Klaxons, SMD) at The Premises in Hackney, London.
2016 three CD collection. As that noted hipster Plato once observed, when the mode of the music changes, the walls of the city shake. And there was certainly a whole lotta shakin' goin' on in 1967. A distended Summer of Love saw psychedelic pop emerging from the underground clubs to infiltrate the home-grown music scene mainstream, with the vast majority following in the footsteps of perennial market leaders The Beatles in surrendering to the new genre. As the year progressed, it seemed that more or less every element of the British pop world had been swept up in the blissed-out UFOria. Beat boom survivors, R&B stalwarts, sharp-suited mods, Swinging London soul revues, earnest acoustic folkies, Denmark Street hustlers, traditional pop acts… all abandoned or refined their previous identities to make music that reflected the ubiquitous influence of psychedelia in it's myriad paisley-patterned guises. Across four hours and eighty tracks, the all-singing, not-much-dancing Let's Go Down And Blow Our Minds anticipates the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love to chronicle a tumultuous twelve-month period of music-making within the British Isles.
