We’re marking the 35th Anniversary of Acid Jazz with a series of classic reissues from our catalogue. The first of these is Mother Earth’s debut album – ‘Stoned Woman’ pressed on special edition yellow colour vinyl, out 10 March.
Recorded in a Tottenham industrial estate studio at the height of ‘acid jazz’, it’s a rock inflected, funky brew that heavily referenced Blaxploitation soundtracks from the early to mid 70s.
Mother Earth developed a life of their own, moving through line-up changes, and leaving behind the arguably more radical sound that remains distilled in this album. A must-have for original-era acid jazz fans, marking an important time in British music – pre-order yours now.
Look out for further releases in this series – marking 35 years of Acid Jazz Records – 1988-2023
