Saluki, Norway

Saluki - s/t. 1977 Compendium.

Another one from the archives. This is an album Heavy Rock turned me onto years ago. He loves it, but I've just never been able to get into it much. I'm sure many of you will appreciate it though!

Saluki's sole output is a funky deep groove album from Norway with the requisite in-demand-DJ fat beats and loads of clavinet. Definitely a style the Americans were better at mastering, and this comes across (to me anyway) as a somewhat cheap imitation. Given the label pedigree (Vanessa, Hugh Hopper, Mirage, Blow Out) I'm guessing these were accomplished jazz musicians branching out into more commercial territory. Features a wonderful topless genie-out-of-a-bottle cover.

Priority: none
