Here is one of my favorite LPs in my collection, still in the original plastic wrap, Cali Fever by the band Orgone, from LA. If it weren’t for the New Mastersounds, I think these guys would probably hold the title of the hottest thing happening today, in my taste. Vintage production styles, superbly written funk tunes, and a killer instrumentation (namely a super-tight trumpeter & trombonist) round out the reasons to love this band. Cali Fever’s got a number of gems on it, including the title track. Get onto Spotify (where you can listen instantly and free) to check out the album Bacano if you’ve never heard these guys. Also a stellar offering. Seriously, love, love, love this band.
Of course, it’s featured here because the album cover is a neat piece of artwork unto itself.
