Features Ron Carter and Billy Cobham, and is #43 on Mojo's list of the "50 Most Out There Albums of All Time"... then in 1972 he lands in the Basque country and produces some funky reinterpretations of popular Basque folklore songs and dances, all around the theme of witchery and covens (Akelarre). As crazy and weird as it may sound, this record is virtually unheard of in collector's circles. What he comes up with is really astounding, a funky as hell workout which will get you screaming for more.

Killer go-go psychedelic soul which defies categorisation: tight rhythm section, open drum breaks, funky as hell guitar leads, groovy flute, weird electronic sound effects and Moog bits (most likely courtesy of Walter E. Sear, who gets a mention in the original liners) alternate with more stylish moments (think Terry Callier or blaxploitation soundtracks of the era like Marvin Gaye's Troubleman) and even some fusion styled groovers.
