CD Reviews

At last, some early Cobham on CD!
Marc Szeftel | Seattle, Washington | 06/09/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Since Spectrum was released in the early 90s, we have been waiting for the rest of Billy Cobham's early work to be issued on CD. At last we have one. It's hardly the best; after he reached his peak in the masterpiece "Total Eclipse" Cobham followed it up with "Funky Thide of Sings", which repeats much of the funk groove he had settled into at that point. Like much of Cobham's later material, most of these tracks are not especially memorable and the sound is very 70s; still, there's a freshness here that you won't find in his later work. "Moody Modes", written by the keyboard player Leviev, is the most interesting track, and his cover of Keith Jarrett's "Sorcery" displays the Cobham funk sound at its best. A must have for Cobham fans; let's hope we don't have to wait too much longer before "Crosswinds", "Total Eclipse", and "Life and Times" make their long-delayed appearance on compact disc."
Listening RIGHT NOW!

"I just bought this on Amazon. I'm a huge funk jazz fan, but I always have a difficult time finding anything funky enough. I've resorted to only purchasing jazz from the 70s.

I'm listening to Billy Cobham for the first time right now and it's blowing my mind. Why doesn't this guy own FUNK.COM? I don't know, but he should.

If you like funky, if you watch CHiPS for the soundtrack, if you wear your collars large and in charge ....

BUY THIS CD! You'll love it. Guaranteed."
The funkiest damn CD in the world

"Billy Cobham scares me. He does. Every time I listen to this album it is so unbelievably funky that I get scared and have to sit down with a cool drink. I have the tunes and grooves going round my head right now - incredible, but frightening."
