    Magic Carpet - Do You Hear The Words (1972)

    In the 1960s and 70s, both in the UK and in America, there was a burgeoning interest in Indian culture and music, most famously spear-headed by virtuoso sitar player Ravi Shankar and sarod player Ali Akbar Khan, amongst others. Numerous UK bands of the era began to use sitar and Indian musical sounds generally to add a flavor of the east to their recordings. By contrast, Magic Carpet was a more cohesive Anglo-Indian fusion, the Indian instrumentation generating and being integral to the music, not simply an addition. Based around the classically trained sitar virtuoso, Clem Alford, and the ethereal voice of Alisha Sufit, Magic Carpet created a distinctive sound described (perhaps misleadingly) as psychedelic progressive folk music.

    The Magic Carpet album has been described as a psych folk gem - a unique and extraordinary fusion of east and west, Magic Carpet being one of the very first bands to truly combine Indian and western instrumentation. After a launch at the 100 Club, London, UK, the Magic Carpet band performed at Cleo Laine and Johnny Dankworth's Wavendon, enjoyed airplay on Pete Drummond's Sounds of the Seventies on BBC Radio, plus made several club and festival appearances. However, this novel collective split up shortly after the first album was released. It was only after a lapse of some fifteen years that recognition followed. Widely and more positively reviewed, the original Magic Carpet album has now been reissued on CD and vinyl by the UK Magic Carpet Records label.

    Seven of the vocal tracks written by Sufit employ modal tunings in the guitar accompaniment. These 'open' guitar tunings, first introduced and popularized by musicians such as Davey Graham and Joni Mitchell, are supremely compatible with the modal tuning of the sitar, allowing a true integration of sounds. Sufit's vocals feature on nine of the twelve tracks, the remaining three being purely instrumental.

  • Alisha - Nightwalkin *1987* FULL ALBUM

    41:00

    [Synth Pop/Freestyle/Latin Freestyle/Electronic/Dance/R&B/Pop] Here is ElectroPop & Disco artist Alisha Ann Itkin with her second studio album titled: Nightwalkin' . An amazing SynthPop album that every fan of 80's music DESERVES to listen to. This video showcases the complete album ripped directly from the official CD and is exclusively remastered into FLAC format for the highest and sharpest audio quality. Historically, it is a shame that this album kind of fell under the radar as it (at the time) proved that Alisha is a very talented musician. Alisha was born on April 16th 1968, in Brooklyn, New York. At age 8, she began receiving vocal lessons and eventually fell into the music business by her parents, who arranged for studio recording sessions and recitals. At age 14, she joined the rock/dance group The Babysitters in Brooklyn, and recorded a demo that her parents started shopping to various record companies. Vanguard Records brought the tape to producer Mark S. Berry, whom had been looking for a vocalist for what would become Alisha's first single on her first album: All Night Passion. Berry went on to produce her self-titled debut album, which was released in 1985 on Vanguard Records and included additional club hits such as: Too Turned On (No. 6 Hot Dance US) and her biggest single to date, Baby Talk, which reached No. 1 on the Hot Dance charts in December 1985 around the New York Tri-State Area. Due to her success, she was eventually signed to RCA Records in 1986 and thus pre-production for this album went into full swing. Nightwalkin' was released in 1987 and, like her first album, was produced solely by Berry. The goal of this album was to help Alisha crossover and develop her into a mainstream artist as the music contained on it features a more 80's trendy percussion-driven, synth-pop sound rather than the NY early freestyle, electronic club sound on her debut. Into My Secret (Track 1) was released as the lead single, peaking at No. 9 on the Hot Dance US charts, and No. 97 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1987. However, what this album is notoriously known for is the song: Do You Dream About Me (Track 8), which was written by songwriter Diane Warren and was famously used in a montage scene from the 1987 20th Century Fox film: Mannequin when Andrew McCarthy is getting his groove on with Kim Cattrall, lol. Unfortunately, a lot of the songs on this album failed to chart and in the end was the only album Alisha ever released with RCA Records. In the years that followed this albums release, Alisha eventually recorded a third album and even sang a song in the 1999 Molly Shannon film Superstar. Overall, Nightwalkin' is a criminally underrated 80's gem that is without a doubt a worthy successor to her first album. This album was released under RCA Victor, Mercury/Polydor, Metronome Records, and RCA Records '87.

    **For those that are curious, this is the CD version of the album and is exclusively remastered into FLAC format for the highest and sharpest audio quality.

    (Also, Here's a mini documentary I found of her: , btw my favorite tracks would probably have to be I Don't Know What Comes Over Me, Into The Night, and Love You Up.)

  • Festival Mud: El folk es la necesidad de expresarse sin embellecer nada

    8:36

    La duodécima edición del Festival Mud se celebra en Lleida del 8 al 11 de marzo manteniendo la esencia con la que nació: desvestir de clichés al folk, un género que continuamente se asocia a instrumentos tradicionales y a cierto legado musical de la Edad Media. Como explica Antoni Gorgues, director de Mud, si abrimos las puertas del folk y urgamos, se descubren una variedad de sonidos inmensos. En esta ocasión, la propuesta musical contará con Estas Tonne, Mark FLy & Friends, Zé Vito y Alisha Sufit, Maria Arnal y Marcel Bagès, Ferran Palau y Baiuca. Además, se incorpora como escenario La Seu Vella, antigua catedral románica de Lleida.
