El Sonido de Fingier Records (LP)
The sound of Fingier Records... Over the past couple of years we've issued a series of stellar 7" singles on our group label Fingier Records, headed up by Argentinian producer Kevin Fingier. Known for their dedication to soul, R&B, raw funk and latin sounds, many of these have been near-instant sellouts, finding themselves on collector sites selling for ten-times more.
This compilation brings these singles together onto one LP, with graphics and photography on a sleeve to match the sound and style of Fingier Records. It features the vocals of Diane Ward, Jo-Ann Hamilton and Gerri Granger, Brazilian singer Jose Dias and Senegalese vocalist/percussionist Abdoulaye Badiane, backed by the all-star Kevin Fingier Collective.
A great opportunity to own these rare sides, and enjoy them in a new setting and context on a beautifully presented LP. Also available as gatefold soft-pack CD edition.
'I see Fingier Records as an artistic project, more than a record label. And I try to apply that concept in every decision that I make for the song composition, the music production, the audio sound, the analog photographs and the graphic design. This compilation shows this vision perfectly'
- Kevin Fingier
'For the last two years there has been excitement and anticipation as each new single has appeared on Fingier Records, and an urgency to own each of their dynamic and sometimes scarce recordings. Kevin Fingier's unique take on classic R&B, soul, funk and samba has taken us on a journey. It's been an honour for Acid Jazz to accompany him on that journey, and a thrill to gather those recordings together on this essential compilation'
