5.0 out of 5 stars Raw, gutsy and jolly good fun! 13 July 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Money spyder" grows on you like a good wine! My initial impression was of a recording done "on the cheap" with very little processing, and at first, I felt disappointed. Until I played it again (and again) and started to unravel its very simplicity and sincerity. This is an album played by musicians who are having great fun cocking a snoook at most of the commercial pap that's out there at present. The music isn't overly complicated and really doesn't need to be. All the instruments do just enough to get by individually, but as a quartet they achieve a remarkable balance. Even non-musicians will have great pleasure following the classic Hammond sound as it wraps itself around the sounds of the other instruments. This album has pride of place on my current playlist for the very simple reason that it works very well as an enegetic musical detox! If you're disappointed with the rubbish coming out of your radio, put this album on and join in the exuberant sense of fun and mischief of the James Taylor Quartet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original and Still The Best 6 April 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you have ever been curious about owning a JTQ album, then this is the only one you need. Admittedly it doesn't have their high octane fuelled version of the Starsky and Hutch theme (a must have in every single record collection and easily available on numerous compiliations), but if you want thick heavy hammond organ - by the truck load - then this is the only place to be.

With this, their second album, they created an imaginary sound track to the greatest 60's movie of all time, that was never made of course! Groovy beat tunes mix with crazed car chases through the streets of London. Smokie underground clubs rub shoulders with men in black one button suits and chelsea boots. If you're diggin any of this blurb then you should be on your way out the door to buy this album already.

One for the scene setters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Imaginary soundtack 21 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
JTQ were among the first on the english scene to grasp hold of the quiet revolution in the ever so vibrating late eighties clubscene. Inspired by the likes of DJ Gilles Peterson, james taylor quartet dug in the ancestial inspirations of the hammond organ gurues like, Jack McDuff, Jimmi Smith, Johnny Hammond and even Booker T and the Mg's. JTQ 's universe revolved around a jazzy tip with a touch of courderoy adding a jazzy style to their looks and appearance. The Moneyspyder is definately a very real and fastpacing soundtrack to an imaginary movie. Its filled with references to the classic agent, thriller, suspense movies, and the whole sound is very hip and groovy. Those who have had the chance to see this extraordinary band live has experienced vibrant and ORGANic performances with a very lively and energetic quartet that kicks it for real!

5.0 out of 5 stars Swinging 60's 9 Feb 2001
By Douglas T Martin - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"The Money Spyder" sounds like the soundtrack for a lost James Bond movie (Sean Connery-era Bond) scored by John Barry. Twangy guitars and cooler-than-cool organ parts. Not sure why it's categorized as acid jazz; it has more in common with the great instrumental surf bands of the 60's like the Ventures. Great party music for all your go-go needs.
