The Salsoul Orchestra - Magic Journey Vinyl Album

The Salsoul Orchestra's third album, Magic Journey forsakes the consistent feel of the group's past albums in favor of an assemblage of materials -- from soul ("Runaway") to traditional tunes ("Guantanamera") to pure orchestral instrumentals ("Theme From Montreal Olympics, 1976"). There is even an inclusion of "Short Shorts" that forsakes disco entirely for a '50s nostalgia feel and goofily rewrites the lyrics to mention the members of the band. "Theme From Montreal Olympics, 1976" is a straight orchestral instrumental. "Journey to Phoebus" and "Alpha Centuri" feel like outtakes from a science fiction film score. Magic Journey has its great moments too: "Getaway" is a high-octane instrumental retooling of the Earth, Wind & Fire classic and "Magic Bird of Fire" transforms musical themes from Stravinsky's Firebird Suite into a thrilling and hard-grooving slice of orchestral soul that pulsates with frantic percussion and swirling strings. The Salsoul Orchestra also manages to transform the Latin standard "Guantanamera" into a credible mid-tempo dance track layered with a classy string arrangement.

Both the album cover and the vinyl album are in good condition. The inner sleeve is the original sleeve that came with the album.
