Still available. RSD 2020 release. There are not many artists whose discography includes working with Ornette Coleman and Goblin, crafting celebrated New York underground disco classics and being sampled by Jay Z, 50 Cent and The Notorious B.I.G. Furthermore, there not many artists as inspiring and creative as Asha. She played by her own rules whilst surfing genres like a musical space-cadet, fashioning a career in her own unique mold. Asha's debut self-titled album is a wonderful fusion of jazz, soul, blues, and disco. It includes an outstanding cover version of J.J. Cale's 'Right Down Here'; a track which Asha has made very much her own by flipping it into a deep-funk groove with sultry ethereal vocals and a drumbeat almost ready-made for samplers of the future. The record was produced in the UK by Del Newman, who had worked with Carly Simon, Cat Stevens, and Elton John to name a few. It was released on London CBS records in 1973. Comes on sky blue vinyl.
