Sneakin' in the Back

The 1997 album Bluestreak includes another version of "Sneakin' in the Back" that doesn't require an album purchase, but it's not the same recording, so compare carefully!

What a treat!

Wow, what a treat to have this back in my collection after over 30 years ago my vinyl LP copy was lifted out of my collection, never to be seen again. Nonetheless, as I played it for the first time, it all came back. The same day I picked up Southern Comfort by the Crusaders (here on itunes). The cross-over of the musicians from the two bands, the loose and funky grooves, it just brings back great memories. Seeing these guys close up in the small clubs while digging their work on the great studio sides throughout the 70's. These guys owned the scene back then, and this is a valuable history lesson. You can't listen to it and not feel good. If you liked it back then, you'll still like it today, I guarantee it. I thought this was out of print so good job itunes getting it out here for us.

The album cover alone is worth the price.

The backside was even better.

The take away number on this album is "Spindrift". I've never heard the sensations of sailing captured so perfectly in music. Joe Sample's fingers dancing on the electric piano and John Guerin's wildly creative drumming create the sights of sun glistening off of windblown chops and spray bursting off the bow, while Tom Scott's brass harmonies capture the feel of sun and motion.

It reminds me of days spent at Marina Del Rey with my girlfriend (who's now my wife).
