Published on the Musea label in the year 2011, "Time Machine" is the fourth solo album of Argos' drummer Ulf Jacobs. Lyrically, it's about the fascination of time travelling, freely adapted from the famous novel by Herbert George Wells. Musically speaking, the album sounds like classical Progressive rock, with lots of Mellotron, Moog, Hammond organ and opulent drumming in the style of the Golden Seventies.
Whilst in The Faces, Rod Stewart pursued a solo career, which paid dividends in 1971 when he was propelled to the top of the UK charts with Maggie May and later You Wear It Well, both are included here. Enjoy!
Thinking big, Bootsy Collins’ 2011 effort is a conceptual trip, a funky history lesson brought to life by the P-Funk veteran, his rock-solid band, and a slew of guest stars, ranging from rapper Ice Cube to professor Cornel West. In between, there’s funk-rock shredding from freaky and frequent collaborator Buckethead, some psychedelic storytelling by way of an old Jimi Hendrix interview, plus better-than-expected prose from both Rev. Al Sharpton (on the cultural magnificence of James Brown) and Samuel L. Jackson (on how the funk era was a Renaissance for the hood). Underneath it all, the P-Funk jams pop and stroll with that same old swagger, while Bootsy himself beams down his wild bits of Mothership wisdom, including “It’s recess time, so put a smile on your mind” (“Don't Take My Funk”) and “If you wanna lead the orchestra, you’re gonna have to turn your back to the crowd” (“Siento Bombo”).
