  • The terrific LP "Time Capsule" remains Weldon Irvine's most accomplished and effective recording. Irvine, an extremely talented multi-instrumentalist and composer, had a musical vision that was purposeful, spiritual and funky. A kind of musical compendium documenting the thought patterns and belief systems of the early '70s, it nevertheless surprises with an astonishing vitality and timelessness thanks to radiant funk grooves that anticipate the emergence of acid jazz.

    Irvine also speaks-sings his way across several tracks, solidifying his influence on subsequent generations of hip-hop. A deeply sincere spirituality permeates all eight tracks on "Time Capsule," analysing both the affection ("Soul Sisters") and anger ("Watergate") competing for control of post-Woodstock America.

    Irvine's gripping keyboard and piano playing further captures the moment at hand, deftly balancing contentment and bitterness. For fans of funk, soul and jazz, there's little better than this 1973 classic.
