Mike Vickers: Superman (KPM, 1972, Brass Plus Moog)

British library album. Produced by Mike Vickers.

Picked this up at the Groove Merchant over the holidays and it dawned on me that this is the first KPM title I ever picked up. That’s not totally surprising insofar as I never went out of the way to collect library titles but I still would have thought, at some point, I would have copped a KPM record. Never too late.

I’m guessing this is more of a second tier KPM title; it’s no Big Beat or one of the Jazz Convention volumes but I thought Vickers did a fantastic job here. I could have easily pulled out at least one of four or five tracks to share. Ultimately, “Superman” had the best build-up and captured the whole “brass meets moog” theme well.
