Joe Bataan - The Lost Sessions: New York 1976 - Cd Release

Joe Bataan - The Lost Sessions: New York 1976 - Cd Release cover

A new release from Ace Records BGP (beat goes public) imprint, a "lost sessions" affair release featuring the main man himself Joe Battan

A brief snippet from the release notes is below

It was at this time that Joe left Mericana and placed his next recording at the Rifkind brothers Spring label. Unfortunately no contract was signed and the LP languished in the vaults, apart from a limited run Japanese release in the early 90s, until now. It's a shame because it is the missing link between "Afrofilipino" and his later recordings back at Salsoul. Certainly his vibrant version of Isaac Hayes 'Theme From The Men' is a sure fire follow up to 'The Bottle (La Botella)' and as he had previously updated some of his Fania recordings he does so again here with the wonderful 'My Cloud' and 'My Opera'. The whole album is underpinned with the nascent sound of disco that was in the air in the New York of 1976; the version of 'Sadie' is a disco update of Joe's version of 'Gypsy Woman'. His voice sounds amazing throughout the album particularly on the closing number, a cover of Billy Stewart's 'I Do Love You'.

Full release information by Dean Rudland can be read via the link to the ace website at the end, which also has the great news that Joe Bataan is lined up as one of the headlineacts at the upcoming Goodwood festival
