Product Description

* Despite selling regularly for £100+, Archie Whitewater's rare 1970 album for Cadet Concept has never been on CD before.

* The album is extremely in-demand among fans of funky breaks, attracting collectors of psychedelia, funk, jazz rock, "horn rock" and hip-hop alike.

* Based in New York, Archie Whitewater were spotted by Robert Stigwood and signed to the same Chess stable as the acclaimed Rotary Connection.

* The LP is re-mastered from the original tapes.

* Highlight Cross Country was famously sampled by hip-hop legend Common (on `Chapter 13 - Rich Man Vs Poor Man') while Hulk was borrowed by Blahzay Blahzay.

Format: Audio CD
Obscure one, this. A lot of soul and funk fans will know of the Rotary Connection fronted by the late, great Minnie Riperton. They issued albums on Marshall Chess's progressive soul label Cadet Concept, produced by Charles Stepney. Terry Callier made similarly serene stuff for Cadet. But Archie Whitewater have remained the best-kept secret of crate diggers and vinyl obsessives. The album's been selling for £150 on eBay mostly because it's been sampled by hip-hop artists like Common. But nothing was known about the band.

So what's it like? Well, it's less inyer-face than the likes of Blood, Sweat & Tears and other "horn rock" acts of the period. Maybe it's jazzier, which is explained by the presence of experienced jazz saxcophinist Travis Jenkins. But what really sells it is the serene, sublime quality of the music and the vocals. Only 'Hulk', the last track, is proper funk. The rest is just beautiful: music that the likes of Zero 7 et al could only dream of making.

Hats off to RPM for finally making this nugget available on CD. Sounds like it's even from the original tapes, although God knows where they found them!

Njujorska skupina iza koje je ostao ovaj jedini postovani album!Glazba je odmjerena virtuoznoscu bez suvisnog odskakanja od navedenog stila ovog devetoroclanog benda!Pojedini clanovi su prethodno utrli put jazz voda kolaboracijama kao s Don Cherryjem,Pharoah Sandersom,Larry Coryellom,Grover Washingtonom...i mnogim drugima!Album je snimljen u Apostolic studiju NY,ozujka 1970te.Izdan za podlabelu Cadet Concept poznate Chess kuce!Svatko ko je godinama nasao utociste u grupama Big band ili puhacke direkcije kao sto su Chicago,B&S&T,Flock,Ides of March itd.ovaj album treba da imaju u kolekciji! P.S. Zvuk cdea je nevjerovatno cist s obzirom na raritet,te svakako pohvala RPM rec.koji vrlo ozbiljno pristupaju svojim edicijama!
