ORIGINAL LP (NOT a reissue) released on RCA records (cat#APLI-0161), made in USA, orange Dynaflex labels, 1973
KUENDA / WOULD YOU BELIEVE IN ME / LADY LOVE / LUELLA / SHANA / SATAN / RASHIDA / THE WAR SONG / ESPERANZA / LOVE EVERLASTING / ZENZILEAmazing work from the great Jon Lucien -- and probably his best-ever record! The album has Jon hitting a totally unified vision of spacey soul -- bringing in elements of Brazilian music and touches of his Carribean roots, fusing them together with a sweet jazzy style and one of the most compelling voices we've ever heard in soul music. It takes courage to be this gentle and sincere, and although the record was never a hit when it was released, it's been a perpetual favorite of groovers for many many years -- thanks to the depth of Lucien's lyrics, and the unique range of rhythms in the set! Includes the funky "Would You Believe in Me", the space "Lady Love", and the tracks "Kuenda", "Satan", "Love Everlasting", and soooo many more. Essential soul from one of the 70's most righteous artists -- and probably the best place to start sampling his rich career!
