Everybody Loves The Sunshine
classic album reissue in the verve originals series. the record is right in the same vein as roy's groundbreaking 'he's coming' album - a righteous mix of soul jazz, subtle funk, and some of the cosmic wisdom that roy was spreading among the jazz funk underground - all wrapped up beautifully, but never in a way that's like commercial soul of the time. there's a few instrumental tracks on the album, plus some vocal ones that show that off-beat male /female style that roy would use more famously in later tracks like 'everybody loves the sunshine' or his work with ramp. players include harry whitaker on electric piano, edwin birdsong on organ, alphonse mouzon on drums and jumma santos on congas.
