Now Playing: Mississippi "Velvet Sandpaper"
WORLD (Gallup, NM)
Opus I 197 (Foremost Records JWP 1039)
After some hush-hush speculation behind the scenes, this obscure artifact finally surfaced for real via an eBay auction and some soundclips. Supposedly a lost 'Grail', World turned out to be average Latin rock from what sounds like a local club band. Sounding somewhat like the Scorpio Brothers LP from NYC, it appears from the clips to be an OK but unexciting record, and I was unable to pick up any X-factor or underground/psych angle what would have warranted the ecstatic hype.
