Spaceark spent considerable time and money recording their eponymous 1975 debut album at Sunset Sound Studio in Los Angeles, yet released it as a self-distributed, private-press LP. Because of that, this brilliant West Coast soul set has become an in-demand item amongst collectors, with original copies changing hands for vast sums online. Here, it finally gets the reissue treatment courtesy of Mr Bongo. Undeniably dreamy, poignant, warm and musically expansive, the album's ten tracks sit somewhere between Steely Dan style jazz-rock, up-tempo soul, all-action jazz-fusion, Curtis Mayfield and Al Green. It's genuinely a forgotten and overlooked gem, with the album sounding as timeless and evocative now as it did back in 1975.
