Music Of El Topo Shades Of Joy Douglas Douglas 6, 1970
Music Of El Topo album cover

Don't make the mistake of picking up the awful 'soundtrack' version of this album on Apple Records - it's not the same at all! This is the excellent original music, composed by Alexandro Jodorowsky and played by an all-star band. The band include the superb Grateful Dead (and rare funk record) keyboard genius Howard Wales among others, so you'd expect it to be good. It is. Excellent, well-produced, chunky organ-fuelled beaty jazzy funk with rock overtones. The best track is the excellent jazzy organ flute-funk 'Desert Is A Circle', as featured on the Mood Mosaic compilation series. Hard to find but well worth it.

Overall Rating: 4

Track listing:

The Desert Is A Circle | Man Of Seven Years | Flute In A Quarry | Together | El Topo's Dream | Slowest & Saddest Waltz | Freakout #1 |
