Album

Smoothly soulful but not slick and spiritually uplifting throughout, the album's blend of funky fusion and progressive R&B is hardly the stuff purist dreams are made of, but anyone who loves the deep grooves of Donald Byrd or Mason's former employer, Roy Ayers, will immediately understand why this is considered a masterpiece in acid jazz circles. Breezy ballads and ferocious up-tempo groovers alike benefit from Mason's sure sense of songcraft and his knack for full-bodied arrangements. Rhythm Of Life. James Mason - Rhythm Of Life 1977.

A virtually forgotten classic, Rhythm of Life has gained a small cult following and managed to significantly contribute to the movement known as acid jazz. James Mason managed to masterfully combine elements from R&B, jazz, soul, and funk to create fast moving grooves and smooth ballads layered with amazingly sweet vocals from Clarice Taylor. At the time, James Mason did not realise the impact such an album would have and worse still, did not realise that such a piece of art would remain unnoticed for decades. Rhythm of Life Q&A.

Can anyone comment on the quality of this release vs the 2014 release?
Shliffiana
Anyone unfortunate enough to have purchased this pressing should get their money back + compensation for the trouble. This is offensive.
Ielonere
Could someone please comment on the sound quality of the 1999 Soul Brother Records reissue? Cheers
IGOT
In short, it is not bad, but not great either.
JUST DO IT
read al the comments but no mention about the quality or bootleg or not rom the 1999 soul brother release,any comments
Nilarius
Juuuuust the worst, best to be avoided. Got an incredible sounding Japanese CD instead ... what a mind blowing different listening experience.

Hi Rick, I'm not too sure what you're disagreeing with. But yep (aside from your numbers) your comments are accurate. Wow!! 50 sealed copies, is a great one off find (I doubt whether anyone else found similar a haul), even in the eighties when only UK collectors were interested in this album. Thanks for clarifying further checkable info people can use to find out if they have the original. BTW the originals were pressed in just one run and was never repressed. The fairly recent Japanese 'Shout! Productions' reissue of the LP and 7" promos were limited to 1000 copies as Shout! wanted to mirror the production and original release of the album and promo 7"s as closely as possible therefore James Mason supervised the reissue personally. So yes I also agree 1000 (total number of LP and 7"s together and NOT JUST the LP) are likely to have been pressed. Considering a fair number of those copies are likely to have been 'junked' as you put it. I suppose this vindicates my view that true originals are a pretty rare find nowadays. Maybe there were more around during the 80's, but I still doubt, considering the likelyhood years of attrition etc, there is much more than 100 genuine original pressings floating around.

Hi Alan, don't think it's as rare as you think, I found 50+ copies of it in the U.S. at various locations in the late 80's exactly as you describe - in one-stop distributors (sealed) or the occasional shop, (cut outs) with the tell-tale Dennis King mastering stamp on the A-side. There is another shape stamped on both sides that I can only describe as looking like an open book ? Have to look it up; maybe the metalwork processing plant stamp. I think it's likely there were 1000 pressed as an initial, probably had a re-press too - but that's peanuts for a territory as big as the US. Many of the cutouts also showed slight signs of water damage so it's possible some got junked..

LONDON is where the cult of 'Rhythm of Life' really begun to explode, during the glorious Jazz-Funk years of the early eighties. No one was remotely interested in this album until then. During that period, you could still travel to the USA and find this (if you were lucky) normally gathering dust in 'mom and pops' stores or distributor warehouses, where many neglected and forgotten vinyl releases saw their final days for $2 and less. (The irony of today's world where many are now as sought after holy grails :-) Today, 40 years later.....Thank you to ALL the London based pirate radio, street DJ's and collectors for one of the greatest finds in modern black music.
Morlurne
Bootleg or not - it sounds mono and much worse than any (bad) youtube rip.As already mentioned: Disappointing.
Voodoolkree
Yep - got this new reissue from a reputable dealer. Reissue claiming Chiaroscuro Records CR 189 on cover, labels and vinyl etching. Nice heavy vinyl, nice labels and authentic looking packaging, but sound is virtually MONO so does not sound impressive at all compared to stereo versions on promos for recent release on you tube that are clearly in stereo and sound a lot better. Disappointing.
Tejora
Can anyone comment on the quality of this repress? cheers
Jay
Myke_B Well thanks for that, but what about the sound quality? Scorpio re-issues are usually very cheap but do not have good sound quality. Flat / lifeless sound. I imagine for a few dollars more the quality could be much nicer.
Ranterl
Well thanks for that, but what about the sound quality?
Angana
All 8th Records pressings are bought from Scorpio, and repackaged. Traffic Entertainment put a barcode sticker over the Rhino/Scorpio sticker on the back. Maybe they’ve started taking the Scorpio stickers off.
Kamuro
Do yourself a favor and save up some money for the older Sure shot reissue from 93. The sound difference is very much notable, if you ask me.
Saberblade
Fantastic record, can't be THAT rare with 13 copies for sale, $300+, all nearly in the same condition?? September 2nd, 2017. Thanks Discogs!
Modimeena
Thank the record buying market; a view from the seller side.... It is worth the price tag because the record is a gem.
Wild Python
Better keep your hands away from that copy! I just compared this (bootleg) reissue with the proper Sureshot reissue and the Sureshot sounds way much better!!! Really big sound difference!

'Sweet Power Your Embrace' is the kind of song you will never get tired of hearing. That's why it was absolutely impossible to avoid asking James himself about his glorious all time Masterpiece:"I used an ARP Odyssey. I wanted to use an ARP 2600 but didn’t have access to one at the time. I spent a good deal of time programming that sound but fell short of the nuance I might have achieved with the 2600. I worked out the composition using the Arp for the Bass, and a Fender Rhodes for the harmony. I filled in the rest via overdubs.I know I was influenced by Weather Report and the introduction is similar to Birdland, but the groove and harmonic approach I wanted was very different. When I developed the song I was working with Dwayne Purdue, but when it came time to record he was unexpectedly unavailable. Narada Michael Walden had a different style and was not able to give me the groove I was looking for. I was so set on a achieving different feeling for that song that we did it over and over — and I almost wiped the performance that ended up on the record. Phil Clendeninn literally jumped in front of the multitrack and refused to let me record over it. Ultimately, what Narada he did was so spectacular, especially with the ending, that it was fortunate that he rather than Dwayne was on that session."

daftcombo Interesting, but... which song is this piece of interview about? Sorry, will include it now: 'Sweet Power Your Embrace'

Supposed to be Ultra rare, there are 10 for sale from different Sellers going for obscure prices and if there are 10 for sale I don't know how rare this is. I've seen Records in demand which only once in a while come up for sale going for much less and that raises some questions ( and yes, I can afford it ) but Viva la Capitalism. 545,00 $ for a copy that is VG, VG is just not near good enough for Vinyl, throw it in the fucking Garbage.
Mikale
If people are paying $300 for this non-rare record, why should they price it for less?
Cheber
I couldn't agree more. If it's junk it's junk. Frame it and put it on a wall . . . but not for an exorbitant price!
Winotterin
JAMES MASON! The name only gives a "Funkateer" like me goose bumps all over, the album Rhythm Of Life are one of THE album ever!
Wrathmaster
The sound quality on this limited edition Japan package as previously mentioned is superb. Pressed on thick virgin vinyl. The sleeve is a high quality printed, heavy thick card design identical to the original release. These Japan copies are identical in every detail to the original release except the reissue cat number SHOUT-246 is discreetly printed underneath the original cat number on the vinyl label disc.By the way, if you're lucky, you may find the Disk Union promos with the LP OBI strip and 7" picture insert showing James Mason posing with a guitar. The retail edition of this LP has a sticker-ed plastic outer sleeve and no picture insert with the bonus 7".The Japan reissue is not to be confused with the more common US or Europe represses. All the SHOUT copies of this album come with the bonus 7" promo and either an OBI strip or sticker-ed sleeve clearly showing it's a Japan reissue. Only a 1000 copies were pressed in total.Hope this helps anyone looking for the quality Japan reissue of this classic album. This Japan reissue is not shrink-wrapped sealed. It only comes in a resealable plastic sleeve/bag.

Any ideas if this is a bootleg or an official reissue??
Charyoll
If it's distributed via the US company Scorpio is more likely a bootleg.
Dusar
This isn't a bootleg. It's distributed by Scorpio -- they're notorious for cheap reissues pressed by Rainbo. They've done loads of Blue Note, psych, Latin, soul, and other jazz labels. Often times they reissue albums that are rare and hard to find. The pressings are very hit and miss.
Cordanius
My guess is the same. Just listen to it. There is no way the original sounds like this. This is a $10 bootleg all the way. Still better than paying 3-4 bills.
Mustard Forgotten
I am obviously guessing but it looks, feels and sounds like a bootleg.
August
that's what I'm wondering. Did you have any luck finding out?
