Funk/folk grail. From Forced Exposure: “Originally released in 1971, a wonderfully soulful blend of folk, jazz, funk and psychedelia, orchestrated by the legendary Eumir Deodato. Featuring the cream of America’s early ’70s session musicians including Barbara Massey, a session vocalist for artists such as Cat Stevens, and Ernie Calabria, a guitarist in Harry Belafonte’s band in the ’60s. The singers were backed up by a fine selection of guest appearances from jazz titans Keith Jarrett and Joe Beck. Prelude To… is a lost classic that has attracted ever-increasing interest from DJs, samplers and discerning collectors.”
no doubt. The Beatminerz aka Mr. Walt and Evil D used it as the basis for Smif-N-Wessun’s ‘Wrecktime’ from the classic Da Shinin’ LP.
