Available as a 2CD, the first disc contains 17 tracks selected by the band and the second disc gathers 14 rare and unreleased tracks.
"Moon Safari is the first full-length studio album by the French band Air, released in 1998. The album is considered a classic of the chillout genre. It is noted in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. It scored hits with the tracks "Sexy Boy", "Kelly Watch the Stars" and "All I Need" (which features vocals by Beth Hirsch). Moon Safari debuted at number six in the UK album charts mainly due to almost universally glowing reviews by the British music press and the success of the single "Sexy Boy"." Wiki
Very Rare 1985 release by the legendary Don Cherry. The connection between the spacey jazz trumpet of Don Cherry, and the later urban funk of his daughter Nenah, always seems a bit weak – until you hear this 1985 effort, which has Cherry working in a strange mix of contemporary rhythms and his older funkier styles. Cherry actually lays down vocals on a number of tracks, in a self conscious bluesy sort of way that's almost in a pomo kitschy style. The effect doesn't always work, but there's more than a few interesting moments on the LP. Titles include "Art Deco", "Call Me", "Rappin Recipie", and "Treat Your Lady Right".
