ROY AYERS "FAST MONEY"
First of all this is one of the more obscure Roy Ayers albums which was released on his own Uno Melodic Records (Not Columbia). There are really great songs on this one such as "Black Family" and "Chicago" which is played often in the house scene. The track that really gets me is "Fast Money". Where have you ever heard a boogie track with vibes solos in it not to mention vocorders and chants about "Fast money, Get that money now!". You even get a breakdown where Roy asks the crowd if they want love, say yeah and if they want some money say yeah! I seriously can't get enough of this song. Its gets played on repeat on my recent weekend mornings. Its motivational to me and it might be for you too. Extra special audio file contained here.
