You may stop asking yourself what Tony Visconti did when he was not producing records for people like T-Rex, David Bowie, Osibisa, Marsha Hunt, Gentle Giant, Sparks or Haysi Fantayzee. The answer is funky music and karate (see cover). I don't care much about the Karate, but the funky music sho nuff turns me on!

Format: LP
Label: Barclay

Year: 1975

Condition: NM/VG 

 

The sought after only solo album by the Martin Circus member is a süperunique mix of chanson and various worldly influences. I find it quite difficult to describe the music, except from calling the arrangements brilliant. "Irresistible Pop Not Pop by a Progrocker" might be too obvious? Maybe you just listen and hear what I mean?
