A Grammy award-winning producer for Capitol Records who helmed dozens of great jazz, funk, and soul records during the 1960s and '70s (David, McCallum, Lou Rawls, Stan Kenton, the Electric Prunes, Cannonball Adderley.), DAVID AXELROD also forged a distinctive musical style while recording several of the most eccentric albums of the '70s. His music was rediscovered in the 90s, and has been sampled by key hip-hop artists such as Dr.Dre, DJ Shadow, or Lauryn Hill. This Vampisoul release offers you his very first UK orchestral performance, live at the Royal Festival Hall in London. Both formats, audio CD and double LP, come together with a DVD of the show itself! In recent years, David Axelrod's work has broken out of its cult status to become a worldwide phenomenon, but its popularity rests on those who championed him from the very beginning. Those who view his 1960s and 1970s recordings as the height of cosmic orchestrated jazz music, ripe for beat mining (read Hip Hop) and late night listening sessions. Then there are the hip rock fans who see his work with the Electric Prunes and by extension, his Capitol albums, as the epitome of stoned space rock. Both groups invest an almost mystical sense of musical exploration to the work of David Axelrod. As news of the concert spread, it became one of the must see shows of the year. The venue was full, bulging at the seams, with collectors, DJs, recording artists and TV personalities, all desperate not to miss David's first UK concert.
