1976 Masterpiece On Vinyl LP! Pressed On Pink Color Vinyl!

It's difficult to think of many artists that have had as diverse a career and who have been involved in as many different genres of music as Asha Puthli. A musical pioneer who forged a path through 60's psych, free-jazz, pop, rock, disco, and more.

Asha's 1976 album The Devil Is Loose is maybe her best-known record. Featuring the beautiful disco-funk-classic "Space Talk," Asha's ethereal soaring vocals take us on a journey that almost mirrors Asha's eclectic career. The track was championed by a wide range of musical scenes and movements, and over space and time, it has been commandeered as their own. You would hear it played by David Mancuso at the now "mythical" underground New York party "The Loft," in the most discerning disco nightclubs across the globe, in the Rare Groove scene, and also being sampled by hip-hop heavyweights such as The Notorious B.I.G / P Diddy, and The Pharcyde. The appeal and lifespan of "Space Talk" keeps on extending and morphing as new audiences gleefully discover it for the first time - it still sounds as relevant and fresh on the dancefloor today - a sign of a true classic.

Mr. Bongo is thrilled to be releasing records by such an iconic musical maverick as Asha, from her roots in India to becoming a globe-trotting artist with a celebrated career in music and acting, whilst always staying true to her art. She has blazed a trail so that others could follow. Whether you are buying this album as a replacement for your worn-out original copy or it's the first time you've heard of Asha Puthli and you're just intrigued and drawn in by the cover, the folks at Mr. Bongo hope you enjoy this quintessential slice of Asha's world.

...Asha Puthli's second album, Devil Is Loose, is a masterpiece of snakey, spaced-out soul and pre-mainstream disco. Produced and recorded by Euro soul kings Dieter Zimmerman and Dave Virgin King (who, along with Puthli, wrote all the tracks here), this title stands head and shoulders over her debut for its consistently deep soulful groove and lush arrangements....The Devil Is Loose is one of the more enduring pieces of Euro soul from the '70s, and despite its dated production techniques, its songs and Puthli's voice stand the test of time very well.
