Tommy Guerrero - From the Soil to the Soul (Rem. 180g LP)


Yes! Tommy Guerrero’s much-loved 4th LP – the smooth West Coast
classic From The Soil To The Soul - gets its first ever vinyl release. As the
follow up to his revered Soul Food Taqueria, this album was originally released
by Quannum Records 2006 but only on CD. Working with Tommy directly, the LP has
been fully remastered, cut on to heavyweight wax, and comes with artwork freshly
reworked by the man himself.
From The Soil To The Soul represents a continuation of Tommy’s blissful
guitar-soul whilst demonstrating increasingly complex chops and a slightly
darker side to his distinctive sound. His spare, effortless funk is blended here
with elements of Americana, heavy psych, lo-fi fuzz and intoxicating Latin
rhythms. Combined with his typically breezy, laid-back San Franciscan style,
it’s a vibe from start to finish.
Seite 1
Recorded primarily in his home studio, Tommy wrote, arranged and played nearly
all the instruments, including bass, guitar, keyboards, percussion and kalimba.
Renowned street artist Barry McGee, aka Twist, designed the cover art which
Tommy has now recast in a deep, deep red for the vinyl version.
As ever with Tommy, the highlights are many and memorable. From twinkling,
sun-drenched opener “Hello Again” to the penultimate, punk-rocking track “Let Me
In Let Me Out” (featuring the melodic yet fearsome rapping of Lyrics Born), the
variety across the LP is relentless, but satisfying, and without once losing
We’re treated to the gorgeous hip-hop blues of “The Under Dog”, Meters-style
Hammond B-3 jams like “War No More” and “No Guns More Glory” and Balearic
bangers like Bing Ji Ling’s star-turn on the sleazy “Don’t Fake It.”
Curumin’s soulful guest vocal elevates the already-great Brazilian lounge feels
of “Salve” to hitherto unscaled heights and the heavy, driving basslines - funky
and warm on “Badder Than Bullets”, sombre and intense in “Tomorrow’s Goodbye”
and “Molotov Telegram” – never fail to move
