UK remastered reissue of their 1994 album. Corduroy's strongest, most successful album, cool, west coast-type harmonies now joined the melting pot of easy funk, Hammond grooves & TV/film-ish material to create the band's masterpiece. Highlights include an inspired, funky rewrite of 'Motorhead' & 'Mini', the album's singles - this album truly works as a whole, with more vocal material than ever before. Includes new liner-notes from the band, rare sleeves, photo's, memorabilia & six bonus tracks, 'Paper Money', 'Simon's Tune', 'Summer In My Eye', 'Emanuelle In The Jaws Of The Dragon', 'Clockwork Man' (Main Mix) & 'Motorhead' (live in Japan). 2001 release.

Corduroy's "Out of Here" should go exactly there

"As an avid fan of acid jazz, I was thoroughly disappointed by the fact that this band is labeled as such. Sure, it contains some elements of funk and jazz, but the overall quality of the music leaves a lot to be desired. Highlights of the album include the tracks "Mini" and "Motorhead". Those are really the only ones I enjoy. Unfortunately, the music could be tolerated if it were not for the cheesy vocals that dominate each song. They sound like they belong on a children's record. By the way, where are the horns? They could do nothing but help this trash."
At last, a review by someone who's heard the record

"Corduroy's fourth album is both a departure from their earlier more frenetic instrumental albums, and a rare treat for those who appreciate mood-soaked, unpretentiously groovy tunes.The instrumentation is unashamedly 70s; Rhodes, B3, Ricky bass, tight drums and loads of nicely-played chicken-scratch. The fact that none of the instruments is continually trying to spotlight itself makes for very relaxing listening, from the wah-driven groove of 'Mini' to the punchy, understated funk of 'Practise What You Preach'. Some bands make whole albums solely of grooves, licks or riffs. This is an album of SONGS which go places and take you with them. The singing has obviously been produced so as to blend some nice harmonies with the polite-but-funky arrangements rather than blow over the top. I don't believe everyone should be required to sing like they're trying to stifle a big sneeze.If you want horns, buy Tower of Power. If you want singers who warble 83 notes per second, buy Quindon Tarver or Mariah Carey. If you want tunes that will ease the kinks out of your brain after a hard day, buy this."
