Must-Have Roy Ayers 10" Vinyl Single!
Mastered & Lacquers Cut by Shawn Joseph, Optimum Mastering!

"There are moments when we harmonize with each other and become one with nature and reality."

When, in the early 2000s, Pete Adarkwah heard of the existence of tapes of unreleased Roy Ayers and Ubiquity recordings sitting in storage he contacted Roy to get hold of them to be mastered and released. Released they were under the banner of Virgin Ubiquity, which spawned two volumes of the original grooves as well as a compilation of remixed versions of selected tracks.

Now coming out on a 10" single, "Reaching for the Highest Pleasure" gets its first-ever vinyl release, thus adding to the canon of must-have Roy Ayers records. This vibraphone-heavy track and funk-fueled bassline epitomizes Roy's Black Consciousness-inspired output from the mid-'70s that also saw seminal albums such as Red Black and Green, Mystic Voyage and Everybody Loves the Sunshine recorded with various lineups of Ubiquity.

This release is backed with the call to arms of personal freedom and self that is "I Am Your Mind Part 2," remixed by Parisian producer Pépé Bradock AKA Julien Auger. First released by BBE on the original Virgin Ubiquity compilation as the original recording and subsequently as a remixed version on Virgin Ubiquity Remixed, this track features a stunning female vocal as well as Roy's spoken-word philosophies laid over a deep and infectious groove.

These two tracks are Roy Ayers at his legendary best from his most innovative period of creativity with his Ubiquity band of top-flight jazz, funk and soul musicians and artists. As already said, this a must-have record.
