Follow The Rainbow
Used - LP - JE 35701
1979 White Label Promo With Custom Inner And Rare Epic 4-Page 12x12 Advertising Insert. Gold Promo Stamp On Back. “When George Duke Made The Transition From Jazz Instrumentalist To R&B Star In 1977, He Received Both Negative And Positive Reviews. R&B-Oriented Publications Tended To Provide Favorable Reviews-Even Glowing Ones-Whereas Much Of The Jazz Media Routinely Trashed Soul/Funk Efforts Like 1979's Follow The Rainbow. To Many Jazz Critics, Duke Was A Sellout-A Virtuoso Who Had Forsaken Creativity And Was Pandering To The Lowest Common Denominator In Order To Enjoy Financial Security. But Truth Be Told, Jazz Musicians Don't Have The Market Cornered On Creativity. Follow The Rainbow Is, In Fact, A Creative Album, And It's An Album That Has Very Little To Do With Jazz. The LP Includes A Few Fusion Instrumentals, Including The Brazilian-Flavored "Festival." But 90% Of Follow The Rainbow Is Devoted To R&B, And Anyone Who Judges It By Those Standards Instead Of Jazz Standards Will Have To Agree That Duke Is Triumphant On Sweaty Funk Tunes ("Party Down," "I Am For Real") As Well As Mellow Soul Ballads And Slow Jams Like "Say That You Will," "Straight From The Heart," And The Earth, Wind & Fire-Influenced "Sunrise." This Album Is Consistently Excellent, But It Isn't Recommended To Jazz Snobs — Only Those With A Healthy Appreciation Of 1970s Soul And Funk Will Enjoy This Album.” – Alex Henderson, All Music Guide more

Liberated Fantsasies
New - LP - G 22835
Sealed 1976 Original Featuring Ndugu, Emil Richards, Airto And Others. Small Cut Corner. “When George Duke Recorded Liberated Fantasies In 1976, He Had Yet To Make R&B His Primary Focus, But He Was Gradually Moving In That Direction. Liberated Fantasies Is Primarily An Album Of Instrumental Jazz Fusion, Although Three Of The Tunes Offer R&B Or Rock Vocals. Singer Napoleon Brock Provides An Enjoyable Rock Vocal On "Tryin' And Cryin'," And Duke's Lead Singing On The Funky "Don't Be Shy" And The Mellow Soul Number "Seeing You" Give Listeners A Taste Of What Was To Come On Albums Like 1977's Reach For It, 1978's Don't Let Go And 1979's Follow The Rainbow. Meanwhile, His Skills As A Fusion Keyboardist Are Illustrated By Instrumentals That Include The Playful "I C'n Hear That," The Groovin' "Back To Where We Never Left" And The Brazilian-Minded Title Song.” Alex Henderson, AMG. more

The Aura Will Prevail
Used - LP - MC 25613
Beautiful 1975 Original PRC Richmond Pressing, Featuring Airto, Ndugu, Alphonso Johnson And Others. Glossy Vinyl, VG+ Jacket. "In 1975, George Duke Was Dabbling In R&B Vocals. But Instrumental Jazz-Fusion Was Still His Primary Focus, And He Had Yet To Be Played Extensively On Any Of The Genres' Stations. When The Aura Will Prevail Came Out That Year, No One Bought The LP For Its Occasional R&B Vocal -- The Main Attraction Was Duke's Keyboard Playing. "Fools" Is A Melancholy Soul Ballad That Finds Him Singing Lead And Predicts What Was To Come On R&B-Oriented Releases Like Don't Let Go (1978) And Master Of The Game (1979), But It Isn't Typical Of The Album On The Whole. This Is A Fusion Effort First And Foremost, And Duke Has Plenty Of Room To Stretch Out And Improvise On Instrumentals That Range From The Insistent "Floop De Loop" To The Brazilian-Influenced "Malibu" (Which Shouldn't Be Confused With The Hole/Courtney Love Gem). Two Of The Songs Were Written Or Co-Written By Frank Zappa: The Fusion Instrumental "Echidna's Arf" And The Gospel-minded Soul Item "Uncle Remus" (Another Tune That Gives Duke A Chance To Sing Lead). Without Question, The Aura Will Prevail Is Among This Artist's Finest Fusion-Oriented Albums." AMG Review by Alex Henderson. more
