Originally released on Verve in 1968, The Distant Galaxy is quite an hybrid of soul jazz and space-age music, an influential cornerstone fully sampled by a who’s who of hip-hop and r&b superstar like Rakim, Madlib and Buck 65. Such an obscure and terrific album that features a blend of jazz, psych and good old '60s light pop with brief "cosmic" audio tidbits inserted between most of the main tracks.
