Magical Shepherd (1976 Warner Bros.) by bassist Miroslav Vitous randomly made it to my turntable last night. The entire record features Herbie Hancock on keys giving it a heavy Headhunters,Thrust, Man-Child kind of vibe. This was part of a small collection I bought in the summer and this is really the first time I’ve been able to turn it up and enjoy it. This is some serious spaced out, jazzy, disco funk. I’m not crazy about the vocals that show up on a few of the tracks but they do add an certain element of mystique and psychedelia which really works here.
Here’s a video of the second track on side A entitled “New York City”. Enjoy!!!
