Shades of McSoul / Whatever It's Worth (feat. Col Loughnan, Jimmy Doyle, John Sangster & John Allan) - Col Nolan & The Soul Syndicate

Australian Soul Jazz holy grail from 1968! Limited to 300 copies w/wide. Debut release on Pacific Theatre Encore, the reissue label started by Melbourne’s contemporary funk / soul lynchpin Australian Lance Ferguson (The Bamboos, Menagerie, Lanu, ex Cookin’ On 3 Burners). Two high energy Mod burners, both originals taken from the forthcoming album ‘Whatever It’s Worth’.
Lead by Australia’s own rival to Jimmy Smith and Jimmy Witherspoon, the ’68 line up of Col Nolan & The Soul Syndicate would prove to be an Australian jazz super-group, consisting of John Sangster on drums / percussion (whose own late ’60s Festival albums are highly collectable), John Allan on bass, Col Loughnan on sax and Jimmy Doyle on guitar (the latter two were also in mid Oz ’70s jazz-rock giants, Ayers Rock).
“Pacific Theatre Encore will be reissuing music from across the globe, but it was important to me for the first release to shine a light on the important legacy of our own scene” says Ferguson, who meticulously restored the audio himself, which was then remastered.
““Even among some of the best Aussie Jazz artists of the 60’s and 70’s, the groove, that funky feel, was sometimes missing. But Col Nolan always had the groove.”” Ennio Styles — Stylin’ / 3RRR Melbourne “I honestly never thought this was a record I’d ever find, so I can’t wait to finally be able to share this music both on the airwaves and on dance floors alike!”” Mike Gurrieri — Mystic Brew / PBS Melbourne “Australia had its own, as yet largely un-mined, swinging rare-groove history and Col Nolan was its King.”” Paris Pompor — Jumping The Gap / 2SER Sydney ““Soul-Jazz genius from the master of the Australian Hammond, Mr Col Nolan (R.I.P.). This blistering album of original compositions and covers features cream of the crop musicians, at arguably their best.” DJ Kinetic — aussiefunk.blogspot.com
