Usuaully when one hears the word "Fantasia", they either think of the 1940 Disney film re-released in the early 70's to profit from the psychadelia-lovin', LSD-trippin' college crowd, or the 2004 American Idol winner who made some song about wanting a "hood boy". Yikes! Good luck with that, 'Tasia.
Very seldom do people discuss the greatness that is this 1979 record from the Bruton music library. The track "Discovery" alone -- previously released as "Solstice" on Bennett's Voyage LP and sampled by Nas -- makes this album worth the purchase. It isn't a difficult record to come by; I believe you can still catch it on CD&LP for 69 euros.
By the way, what the hell is a "hood boy" anyway? (download)
