if a grail was ever holy... Colonel Abrams demo tapes. As dope as you'd hope..!
Ron Morelli (L.I.E.S.)
"Classic NYC bootleg tape versions that floated around for a long time....nice to see official remasters...good job."
A rough, rugged and raw set of Boyd Jarvis productions finally receive their first official airing on Echovolt. Legendary Colonel Abrams's vocal lines power through Yamaha CS-15 workouts with sprinkles of dub atop bounding drum-box workouts.
This fourth release in Echovolt growing re-issue catalog includes the bass heavy, passionate thumper "You Got Me Running", the much feted first draft of "Release the Tension", which only ever saw press as an alternate production - with different vocals - by a band named Circuit. And the previously unreleased, Peach Boys-esque, downtempo, surreal soul jam Celebrate as the cherry on top!
All tracks written by Boyd in Timmy Regisford's bedroom studio and recorded straight to cassette tape in the mid eighties.
