Vinyl? Check! #39: Let’s Get Away!

July 26, 2009

La Guernica is a Spanish city that was bombed by German and Italian warplanes in 1937. Months later, the Spanish Republican government commissioned Pablo Picasso to create a mural for the 1937 World’s Fair which exposed Spain’s civil war to the world. Billy Cobham and crew also created a work of art in commemoration of the storied Spanish town, an 8 minute opus of musical goodness which includes a drum solo by Billy Cobham. So sit back, close your eyes and be transported to a funky fusion track from over 3 decades ago that sounds as good now as I’m sure it did then.
