Deodato LOVE ISLAND Vinyl Record

Deodato LOVE ISLAND Vinyl Record
Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve. 1978's Love Island found Deodato concocting his own ineffable brew of fusion and funky disco, with the help of friends and cover songs along the way. Love Island finds him unleashing a nice selection of songs which are all pleasant to the ear. The album could almost be considered a concept album, every song title apparently revolving around jungle tropics, warm winds and sandy beaches. The album kicks off with 'Area Code 808' which places the initial action in Hawaii, a twitchy extended fusion revolving around quite a nice funky bass line. The remainder of the set carries on from there, with the groove ebbing and flowing from the punchy 'Whistle Bump' to the pleasant and decidedly mellow strains of 'San Juan Hut' and on to the title track. 'Tahiti Hut' is co-written by Deodato and Earth, Wind & Fire's Maurice White, and features appearances by three more EW&F members: Verdine White, Freddie White, and the percussive genius of Philip Bailey.
