This is a really nice album from 1975. Everything is in a nicely arranged gentle funky style, and the arrangements are quite spare and appealing. ‘Bolero '75’ was featured on one of the Mojo club compilations from Germany. My favorite track so far is ‘Slaughter on 10th Avenue’. ‘Question’ is bizarre – at the beginning, it has a strange fast-strummed chord sequence that makes it sound just like My Bloody Valentine (but without the distortion!). It turns into a pretty dippy vocal, although the instrumentation is still cool. The final track ‘Theme from Prisoner of second avenue’ is a fun, bouncy track with strings. Kind of a bridge between early 70s easy listening and disco.
