Enoch Light and the Light Brigade-CARRIBE

This picture doesn't really do justice to the man, his wild stereophonic sound, and his innovative ab-minimal cover art, but since this is from a sleeveless 45 on Command records, at least you get a glimpse of the man behind the Light Brigade. This track is the b-side to an exactly what you'd expect version of "A Hard Day's Night," which almost compelled me to not buy it. But this track is uproarious from the onset, with its lush pitter-pat percussion and trilling synthesizer sounds punctuated by a riverboat hornline. The arrangement is half quincy jones and half afro-cuban dizzy gillespie, all coated inna "springtime in oz" style production. "Carribe" is more of an audiophile's wet dream than a dj song, but can work well as punctuation or a pivot in a set.
