Visions Of Tomorrow  

Visions Of Tomorrow were a mainstay of the Mobile, Alabama funk scene, led by Gerald Grant they gained acclaim at the many charity events and benefits in which they would frequently perform. They played a mixture of covers and originals, of which the instrumental 'Galaxy' was one of their standards. This sounds as fresh today as it ever did.. maybe even more so than it ever did.

As an aside, for San Francisco folks, we are playing the Sweater Funk party next Sunday, the 19th I think it is. I haven't played out in ages and this night is a unique experience and well worth checking out if only just to see it. Its down in the basement of the Li Po lounge in China town, everyone dancing in a fog filled, laser lit fire trap whilst guy's upstairs play mahjong next to a Buddhist alter. Come by.

    Can i ask why most of the files posted are corrupted? (fade outs start over and quite some are in mono)

    I like Beat Electric a lot, but if one of the goals is to spread out these great tunes, it should be considered these corrupted copies spread out fast by downloaders leaving more and more folks disappointed in the end....
