Weldon Irvine - Time Capsule
Weldon Irvine
Time Capsule
LP | 1973 | UK | Reissue (Pure Pleasure)
29,99 €*
Release:1973 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
For fans of funk, soul and jazz, it doesn't get much better than this 1973 classic.
180 gram LP

The sublime Time Capsule remains Weldon Irvine's most fully realized and influential recording. A supremely talented multi-instrumentalist and composer, Irvine had a musical vision that was unerringly soulful, spiritual, and funky. Assembled as a kind of musical scrapbook documenting the thought patterns and belief systems of the early '70s, it nevertheless boasts a surprising vitality and timelessness thanks to luminous funk grooves that anticipate the latter-day emergence of acid jazz. Irvine also rhymes over several tracks, further cementing his influence on successive generations of hip-hop. A profoundly righteous spirituality winds through all eight of Time Capsule's performances, assaying both the affection ('Soul Sisters') and anger ('Watergate') vying for control of post-Woodstock America. Irvine's searing keyboard and piano playing further capture the moment in question, deftly balancing between beatitude and bitterness. For fans of funk, soul and jazz, it doesn't get much better than this 1973 classic.
Weldon Irvine - Liberated Brother
Weldon Irvine
Liberated Brother
LP | 1972 | US | Reissue (Pure Pleasure)
29,99 €*
Release:1972 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Re-mastering by: Ray Staff at Air Mastering, Lyndhurst Hall, London

Weldon Irvine’s debut as a leader remains one of the most fiercely idiosyncratic electric jazz outings of the early ‘70s. Innovative not only for its moody, nuanced jazz-funk sensibility, Liberated Brother also translates the uncommonly strong passion of Irvine’s political and philosophical views into its grooves, creating music of rare sincerity and ambition. While the record’s first-half features longer, more meditative songs, like the Latin-inspired title tune and “Blues Wel-Don,” the second side of Liberated Brother commands the most attention. With sterling contributions from guitarist Tommy Smith, bassist Roland Wilson, and drummer Napoleon Revels-Bey, cuts like “Mr. Clean” and “Sister Sanctified” (later sampled by Boogie Down Productions for the rap classic “My Philosophy”) achieve a deeply funky consciousness forged from elements of jazz, soul, and psychedelia; “Juggah Buggah” even features Irvine on Moog synthesizer, further expanding the LP’s cosmic reach.

Sinbad
LP | 1976 | EU | Reissue (Music On Vinyl)
21,99 €*
Release:1976 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Before Weldon Irvine became known as a musician himself, he served as the bandleader for jazz singer Nina Simone. On his 1976 album Sinbad he’s exploring the extremes of his musical capabilities. The energetic grooves he brought together with Don Blackman, guitarist Eric Gale, and saxophonist Michael Brecker. He’s mixing original songs with covers by Marvin Gaye (“What’s Goin’ On”) and Stevie Wonder (“Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing”). Afterwards, Irvine found further success in writing musical stage production, leaving this album behind as one of his best recordings.

Weldon Irvine - Cosmic Vortex (Justice Devine)
Weldon Irvine
Cosmic Vortex (Justice Devine)
LP | 1974 | UK | Reissue (Pure Pleasure)
28,99 €*
Release:1974 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
After two visionary LPs for his own tiny Nodlew label, Weldon Irvine signed to RCA for "Cosmic Vortex (Justice Divine)", exploring the deeply spiritual and political terrain of his previous efforts on the kind of grand musical scale that major-label funding accommodates. This is a big, bold record by any measure, with a startlingly pronounced focus on lyrics and vocals. At the same time, however, the melodies spread out like tentacles, informed by the improvisational sensibilities of jazz and the deep-groove spirit of funk.

Release:1975 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
During the 1970s, innovative musicians redefined the sound of Jazz, Funk, and Soul music, digging deeper than ever before to unearth powerful new sonic textures. One such pioneer was keyboardist Weldon Irvine, a Jazz-Funk luminary who released some of the most revered recordings of the era. Irvine’s 1975 album “Spirit Man” is a true masterpiece, full of infectious grooves and otherworldly electronic elements. Entirely composed, arranged, conducted, and produced by Irvine himself, the album remains a potent artistic statement, both deeply spiritual and intensely funky. Crate diggers may recognize the opening track “We Gettin’ Down”, which was sampled by A Tribe Called Quest for their classic single “Award Tour”. Now, “Spirit Man” is back in print on limited-edition vinyl, complete with updated artwork. Order this official deluxe reissue now.
