Description (English):
In 1969, after three years as Soul Sister #1 to James Brown’s touring entourage, Marva Whitney came home to Kansas City, putting Ellis Taylor’s Forte label back at full fighting strength. She’d calmed aching crowds the day after MLK’s death, and she’d lived the life, despite its rigors—to pour out her pain and exuberance on Forte sides including “I’ve Lived The Life” and “Daddy Don’t Know About Sugar Bear,” which made national rounds in 1972.

By then, Forte had already done more than deliver Marvelous Marva to market. Taylor worked overtime at KPRS to bring the world The Rayons, who’d stroll their girl group harmonies past Chicago’s RCA studios on “Baby Be Good.” In ’68, The Four Darlings sauntered in with smoky-voiced soul operatics on the demanding “Give Me Love.” Progressing in the middle ’70s, Everyday People got “Super Black” on Forte’s pine-green label. Still powering forward some 13 years on, Forte redawned with the 1980s, essaying disco funk with Sharon Revoal’s “Reaching for Our Star.”

Numero 047 Eccentric Soul: The Forte Label charts Kansas City yeoman’s work, the Carpets and the Derbys, dapper clothiers mysteriously murdered, and marriages made and broken. In 28 LP tracks or 21 on CD, plus a trove of promo headshots and every-hued label scans detailing all iterations of Forte’s logo in print, this 16th Eccentric Soul sojourn hands over vivid floor shakers and lost dance craze records alike—though what moves “The Hen” required remains anyone’s guess.

從上張專輯「GOOD MORNING」開始,日本有機電音創作人no.9正式確立他平靜卻強而有力的美麗聲響,古典吉他與鋼琴編織成的流暢旋律,與非理智的電音互相纏繞交織。對no.9而言,萬事美好,日常生活的細節也可以帶來新鮮靈感,轉化成一首首充滿戲劇性的音樂詩篇。”Introduction”由吉他與甜美的breakbeats組成;”again and again”有鋼琴與小提琴的純粹演奏;no.9還特別把近年揚名海外的日本聲音藝術家Haruka Nakamura 與Akira Kosemura的代表作”Afterglow”做了一個特別的混音版;而在專輯最後一首的”with millions of love”中,取材自他第三張個人專輯「MICRO FILMS」的同名曲,並重新給與新的混音,從中反映著no.9一路走來豐富的音樂歷程。
全14曲73分鐘,「USUAL REVOLUTION AND NINE 」是no.9的又一音樂大作。
