Glitter Of The City
Artist: Ron Everett
Format: Vinyl

More Info:

Vinyl LP pressing. As private pressings go, Ron Everett's Glitter of the City is certainly one of the most obscure, controversial and mysterious of them all. Until now, the name Ron Everett has been practically unheard of outside his native Philadelphia, and only devoted funk and jazz enthusiasts have been aware of his album, originals of which are owned by literally just a handful of collectors scattered across the world. But with the help of noted local music buff Dave 'Philly Dave' Louis, we've spent the past few years unearthing an incredible & unlikely story of selflessness, determination and tragedy. With it's plain sleeve and homemade ethic, the Glitter of the City wasn't sold in stores upon release, nor did it have any kind of distribution. Yet it comprises of funky jams, sweet jazzy soul and all manner of funk & blues infused jazz - a shimmering celebration of Philadelphia and it's vibrant musical community.
