Product Description

Samuel Purdeys 1999 album 'Musically Adrift' was exactly that. Right record, wrong time; a little known classic released only in Japan but nevertheless a timeless body of work. Known for their muscular groove oriented jazz/funk style, these UK players emulated a more Blue Eyed Soul and soft rock approach that aligned with their influences; Steely Dan, Earth Wind & Fire, Hall & Oates, and Tower Of Power. Mixed by multi-grammy winner Elliot Scheiner and Bob Power (A Tribe Called Quest/De La Soul), the pedigree of this cult gem is further validated by the extensive use of well regarded session musicians; 70s session guitarist Elliott Randall, Robbie Gordon (Gil Scott Heron), Frank Floyd (known for his vocal work on Steely Dan's Gaucho and Fagen's Nightcrawler), as well as original Jamiroquai bassist Stuart Zender, and Jan Kincaid and Andrew Levy of the The Brand New Heavies.

To anyone who likes Mike McDonald, Doobie Brothers and (to a small degree) Steely Dan. If you ever felt there was something missing from your late '70's and 80' sophisticated funk and soul collection, this is it.

somebody out there in the music business give this band the recognition they so greatly deserve. I own the original album and now after remastering it's even better.

Checking out the 5 star reviews and Steely Dan references on other Amazon reviews are a tad off the mark. Just because Elliott Randall plays and minor chords proliferate on this album doesn't mean this is the dawn of a new Pretzel Logic.

Don't get me wrong, this is a really good album, but it is derivative; and those references are US 70s & 80s pop/rock such as Ambrosia, Looking Glass, Robbie Dupree, Player and Three Dog Night. There is obviously some blue eyed soul in there, as there are small dollops of the Beach Boys and Todd Rundgren. So I found myself listening to the influences, rather than the songs themselves. But this album deserves to be heard, certainly when compared to the other tuneless garbage in the "pop charts" these days. Second generation pop/rock bands like The Feeling should listen carefully to Samuel Purdey and learn how they can improve. Rich harmonies and song structure can make memorable listening - but it took this album to be re-released in 2013 for it to get any attention (probably because there is nothing anywhere near as tuneful in the current revolting talent-show dominated music "scene")

I like this album, and indeed it has dominated my listening over the last fortnight. But what it lacks, sadly, is a real killer song from this genre. If it were to contain the equivalent of, say, Rundgren's I Saw The Light, Looking Glass's Brandy You're A Fine Girl, Robbie Dupree's Stealaway or Danny Wilson's Mary's Prayer - then this would be a top 5 album for sure. The material is very good, but is missing that one stonking track that would make it perfect. But I do I hope they record another - they should, as this is so much better than other pop dross.

A brilliant feel-good album, 'Musically Adrift' is packed full of musical references but manages to remain fresh and original. It is modern yet authentic, encompassing beautifully rich production throughout whilst avoiding becoming overworked. From the breezy and effortlessly cool opener 'Whatever I Do', to the disco-inspired 'Only When I'm With You', every song could hold its own as a stand out piece of music and together create a rare fusion of Disco, Funk, Jazz and even Latin that is simply a delight to listen to.

An exceptional album occupying the turn table night and day .Channelling the love child of Steely Dan and Earth Wind and Fire without drowning in the after birth, Samuel Purdey are adrift on the west coast with their rods cast on a deep flow of late seventies sounds. Reeling in catch after catch they bring to life an album musically drenched in lush arrangements, hooks and grooves that pays tribute to their influences whilst showcasing their own incredible musicianship. Timeless, a class act.
