Dizzy Bats - The Light And The Dark (1974)

Let's discover now an interesting curiosity ! A subtle melange of jazz, funk and soul. I wouldn't call that release a musical masterpiece. Still, some compositions are well thought and nice to hear. My two favourites are "Leroy The Magician" and "Gotta Get It On " which are groovy and funky. The intro of "Hard Times" reminds me of Ray Charles's ballads...

Anyway, I'm sure some Marc Moulin's afficionados will love it as that band was nicknamed "the swiss Placebo" (even if I personally disagree).

Just give it a try and make your own opinion ! Enjoy.
