That's What HE Said!

"Why oh why is this CD out of print?I've had to hunt down all
of Duke's MPS albums as a result but if you can find this and your a George Duke fan or fan-in training LOOK FOR THIS!It's a whole other side of Duke marred by mind boggling veers into the
avante garde on Frank Zappa's "Echidna's Arf" and the psychedelic "Mashuu" and "Giantchild Within Us-Ego".Of course he also turns out some lovely ballads like "Someday","Seeing You","Fools" and the instrumental "Dawn".On the funk-fusion front GD also pulls out the monster "Don't Be Shy","For Love (I Come Your Friend)" and the mighty instrumental "Back To Where We Never Left" in addition to stabs at hard rock in "Rokkinrowl-I Don't Know", Brazillian music on "Malibu" and "Liberated Fantasies" and simple 12-bar blues on "I Love The Blues,She Heard My Cry".It's clear that Duke's MPS years was a time he devoted to persuing his artistic visions rather then chasing trends in music and these albums mark that period well.But hold on-this isn't the HALF of it!If you still have a turntable seek out the vinyl only releases of "Feel" and "Faces In Refection" (from this same period) and the tripped out soul jazz of 1970's 'Save The Country',all of whitch are excellent and all of whitch are worth getting.Also mandatory is the recent Wounded Bird CD of 'The 1976 Solo Keyboard Album' whitch showcases Duke's final efforts for MPS as re-mixed years later at his Epic studios but very true to this era of music making.Overall this will come off as one of your most valuable investments if you find it."
AN EPIC COMBINATION OF MELODIC CRISPNESS AND BLENDS

"It was back in 1974 (I was a mere pup), late at night and I was listening to "Collette Vaughn the Night Bird Show" on the radio. She was deep into, RTF, Chick, Clark, Miles, Cobham, etc.. Anyway, I heard this haunting cut, "Seeing You" and thought "can heaven get any sweeter?" Later I heard "Sister Serene" and realized that this George Duke is somthing I got to have.Well, I didn't make good on my desire then (errors of youth), and paid a severe price because I couldn't find it anywhere a few years later. In the last 20 years I have had more of my share of "kids" working in music stores that look at me like I am some weird-do from the seventies still high.So I take a chance on Amazon and struck GOLD! "Liberated Fantasies" hooked me on the dukey stick for life and now I can take a lick from original stick. Life is great... and so is this compliation!"
