evans’ pyramid not arthur russell’s

Andre Evans’ work with Evans Pyramid (on Belmont, Funk and Smokah records, 1978-1979), Royale (SMS 1980), Sashay (mid ‘8Ts, unreleased) and Deleasha O’Neal (written 198X, recorded ànd released 1994, label unknown) has been compiled by Cultures of Soul on 12 track cd and 8 track vinyl (with free download code for the remaining four at 192 kbps, all previously unreleased material, e.g. “Party like it’s 2001” and “Where love lives”). Cool but not brilliant – just plain funky, discoïd and interesting for Arthur Russell fans as well … [Incidentally: great to see record labels offer free downloads with vinyl, but sad to see them spend no attention at all on the info in those mp3’s of theirs, e.g. date, composer, illustration!]
