Joи Luciεи - Rαsнidα (1973)
Known as "The Man With The Golden Throat" (coined by Herbie Hancock) in all circles smooth, jazzy and soulful, Virgin Islands native Joи Luciεи is one of soul music's untouchable cult classics and the mastermind behind a number of flawless records from the 70's and beyond. Although sonically something of a spiritual contemporary to jazzy folk-mystics like Terry Callier, his musical tapestry incorporated everything from free jazz to folk to bossa nova to Afro-Cuban traditional, all of which is sewn into phantasmagorical ear candy through his soul capturing tenor.
Anyone seeking a spiritual experience should pick this sucker up PRONTO, lest forever hold your peace and miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime.
