THE JAMES TAYLOR QUARTET - THE MONEYSPYDER

 


46. JAMES TAYLOR QUARTET - The Moneyspyder (Re Elect The President Records) 1987

When The Prisoners disbanded in the mid 80s James Taylor (organ) and Alan Crockford (bass) formed instro au go go band The James Taylor Quartet with an emphasis on groovy 60s style spy music and hammond organ swingers.

After the initial two albums I lost track and I think the band moved more in a jazz funk direction which obviously filled me with horror. So I just stuck with the early stuff and 'The Moneyspyder' is a good place to start. By the way, their version of 'Blow Up' from the movie of the same name really smokes and is way better than the original.
