Starting with what is surely one of my all-time favourite library records, in this next series I'll bring up some of my old favourites (i.e. not new rips), but hopefully there will be material new to you. If not, please go ahead and throw in some requests in the comments section.
This artist's name is more famous I suppose for his involvement with Albuquerque which I talked about way back when (1971's First Wind). At that time I bought the vinyl, which wasn't cheap, to rerip because an incomplete and scratchy mp3 was circulating, which drove me crazy. At that time many years ago I don't think I mentioned what a great songwriter the latter was in his (unfortunately only 2) solo albums. Anyone who hasn't heard those has no idea what fantastically warm and beautiful seventies songwriting he's missing (by using the male pronoun I know I'm not so much sexist as realistic about those who love fusion and prog, apologies to those who don't know their gender/don't have one, and have been legislated out of their bathrooms). And in fact I can upload those if anyone asks, as well as the earlier collaboration.
But back to the matter at hand. This library record called Vibes I have always thought has some beyond outstanding progressive moments, as you can ascertain from the polytonal dissonance of Claustrophobia:
If memory serves me well (actually it's the other way around now the majority of the time), there is a lot of filler on this album to get through. But also some real pearls.
Turning our attention now to Frank's discography, note that he performed in Hymas' Aspects of Paragonne (remember that one?), and that he had two albums called Jingles (a word I usually steer well clear from), around the same time as this one, followed by a slew of others in the 80s. Anyone out there know if they are any good? (Perhaps a comment from library master Mr. (?) could be the order of the day here.)
