Product Description

Product Description

The 1970s saw a plethora of great funk and jazz albums that for somewhat mystifying reasons have failed to be reissued. Sitting at home one night it occurred to me that we had better get a move on and get them out. With this in mind we are this month launching BGP Funk and Soul Classics: long out-of-print albums on CD featuring the very best mastering, great packaging and some nifty sleeve notes to let you know where the album fits into the scheme of things. Our first batch of releases come from the extensive catalogue of Fantasy Records and feature a host of albums that are sought after by collectors the world over.

* "Vibes Of Truth" is a masterpiece that covers all the bases: from soul through funk to jazz. It's been sought-after by collectors for the three club friendly tunes within its grooves: `Backed Up Against The Wall', `Concrete Jungle' and `I Need You Girl'. The album was brought to Fantasy by Donald Byrd who was enjoying great success with his productions for the Blackbyrds for them and his own jazz fusion albums on Blue Note.

* The Blackbyrds were former students of his from the ethnomusicology course he taught at Washington's Howard University just as was Lincoln Ross, the multi-instrumentalist leader of the 3 Pieces. Although the 3 Pieces failed to repeat the success of the Blackbyrds they created an amazing album.

Format: Audio CD
This was a one-off and very rare 1975 Fantasy Label release by a bunch of great backing musicians and produced by the legendary Donald Byrd ... I Need You Girl and If I Could Prove To You, are two simply sublime heartfelt Orchestrated rare groove soul tracks.. Vibes of Truth will take you somewhere else, a magnificent awareness track right out of the mid 70s Black America creative melting pot... Backed Up Against the Wall, is a tighter harder edged funky street level tune... the whole album is a gem..

HASH(0x8c3478c4) out of 5 stars The Write Up Was More Than The Actual Sound 23 Jun. 2013
By Anthony N. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Sometimes when reading a review and story about a CD, album or track I get adventurous and must see for myself if the grooves being described are true to the description. This album I must say fell short of written review. It wasn't bad, it just didn't live up to the writers words.
HASH(0x8c34c888) out of 5 stars lost classic 21 Sept. 2012
By broderick nutter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's a shame that when this album came out in the 70's, it had an underground following. WHUR in DC was one of the few radio stations to give it airplay. Still the quality of musicianship is superb. Running the gramit from jazz to funk to r&b, the compositions are excellent. Everyone that I turned on to this album loved it. Surely a lost classic. I would love to get another copy of this and convert it to cd.
