2 ORIGINAL ALBUMS ON 2 CD SET

This stunning 2 CD set features the 1975 Nucleus album Alleycat and the 1976 compilation Direct Hits. Alleycat sees the British fusion ensemble getting downright funky and rocking, keeping pace quite well with other popular groups of the time such as Miles Davis, Return to Forever, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, and the Tony Williams Lifetime. Direct Hits pulls together songs from various Nucleus albums released between 1970-1974. This set stylistically is much different than what you hear on Alleycat, as Nucleus were perhaps closer in sound and style to Soft Machine or Bitches Brew era Miles Davis during that time period. There is less of a funk edge, more prog-rock, and certainly more jazz.
