Product Description

With Waltz of the Ghetto Fly's cunning cover picture, you'd think that Amp Fiddler was the latest young talent on the block. He is in fact a Detroit funk veteran and former keyboard player for George Clinton's P-Funk. But age makes no difference to what's going on here. In fact his experience has added immeasurably to what could have been just another laid-back funk album. All the usual elements are in place (funky wah guitar? check. Pre-programmed beats and modern funk albums? check), but the upside is that the production (deft brushstrokes of vintage synth and well-spaced open sound) make it come alive. The bonus is Amp's voice; going from Prince-style multi-tracked harmonies to a Sly Stone distorted drawl (and that's simply in the space of one song), he has every nuance down pat. Whether this covers up for the vaguely one-dimensional tunes--from the innovative but chart-friendly "Superficial" to the downright dull title track--is another matter, but the same argument was levelled at Shuggie Otis' Inspiration Information, now rightly hailed as a masterpiece. Either way, one suspects this album could enjoy the same status before long. --Thom Allott

4.0 out of 5 stars It took a while... 20 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
... and then it sunk in - this really is a good album.
On the first listen I was a little disappointed as it sounded like another album of r'n'b, funk and soul tracks with nothing to make it stand out from the crowd.
However after a few more listens the style and the layers of the music began to sink in and soon I found myself singing along even when it wasnt playing.
Top quality music and great to just chill and unwind to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Vibes 24 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album after being introduced to the sounds of Mr Fiddler himself through Gilles Peterson and on the dancefloor at Electric Chair, Manchester.
What an album! It's great to hear a fresh approach to the delightful sounds of soul, funk and RnB.
Amp Fiddler's excellent vocal and his masterful keyboard playing really make this album. This guy had had plenty of experience with collaborations with George Clinton, Prince, Only Child, Brand New Heavies, Carl Craig - to mention a few!
Check out Eye to Eye - in my opinon the best track on the album. An excellent laid back, groovy song with a catchy bass riff.
Buy this album and you will not be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Class-Act !! 4 Feb 2004
By MarQe
Format:Audio CD
All reviewers of this album have mentioned Sly/Mayfield/Clinton et al & rightly so. The guys musical pedigree is second to none and for a debut album this is full of potential and marks Amp fiddler as an artist for the future ... A Class Act in the making !! Buy now or jump on the bandwagon later !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must-have' modern soul album 12 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Amp Fiddler may not be known to the masses but if you have heard and loved the output by the likes of Raphael Saadiq, Erykah Badu, Dwele, and D'Angelo, then you will love this album. Standout tacks for me on this album are 'Superficial', Possibilities', and "Love and War'.
2004 has only just begun and already we have a contender for the soul album of the year.
