Weldon Irvine – Time Capsule (MP3)


The sublime Time Capsule remains perhaps Weldon Irvine‘s most fully realized and influential recording. A supremely talented multi-instrumentalist and composer, Irvine had a musical vision that was unerringly soulful, spiritual, and funky. Assembled as a kind of musical scrapbook documenting the thought patterns and belief systems of the early ’70s, Time Capsule boasts a surprising vitality thanks to luminous grooves that anticipate future musical innovations. For fans of funk, soul and jazz, it doesn’t get much better than this 1973 classic.
