The Ambassador College Band - Spread Some Sunshine (1974 private press xian jazz funk pop psych monster)





I'm not sure if the full version of this awesome record is out ther somewhere already or not,but even if it is, I doubt it is as nice a copy as this one. Unless there is a repress, which I kinda doubt since it is a christian university record on a school label. Anyway, this is the diggers gold breaks and jazz pop killer Ambassadors college LP, a minor legend among the Japanese DIY collectors, whom I think collect the most interesting things, like paying 500 nucks for a late 70s Oklahoma school band project called guys and dolls because it has a frigging awesome cover of the song Tow the Line by Toto, complete with disco beats fuxzz psych guitars and electric keyboards. Anyway this is a staple of the genre, an easy 250-350 dollar record usually. Granted some tracks are kinda weak, thats just how it is with these kinda records, but unlike most there is more than just 1 or 2 burners on here, its not bad to listen to 80% of it really. Enjoy!

Thank you for posting this LP. It saved me from having to make a copy of the LP I have which I know is all scratchy and poppy. Do you mind if I offer it to http://www.herbert-armstrong.org/ so they can add it to their music collection?
