Jade Warrior - Kites (CD)
Regular price €12,90
Eclectic Discs are pleased to release the classic albums recorded by the legendary Jade Warrior for Island records between 1974 and 1978. The duo of guitarist Tony Duhig and virtuoso flautist and woodwind player Jon Field were signed to Island records in 1974, following the recent break up of the four piece Jade Warrior (who recorded three albums for Vertigo records between 1970 and 1973). Island founder Chris Blackwell signed the duo upon the recommendation of Steve Winwood, declaring Jade Warrior to be 'an ornament to my label'. Blackwell gave Duhig and Field access to unlimited studio time to create four albums that were later hailed as instrumental masterpieces, all of which fused ethnic African and far eastern influences with superbly innovative rock guitar playing by Tony Duhig. Kites is yet another milestone album and features the extraordinary talents of Fred Frith (of experimental legends Henry Cow) on violin and makes its debut as a
CD release in its own right.
Kites has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and features extensive liner notes, deluxe slip case packaging and fully restored artwork
