"Wind is high and stormy tonight / We can feel it's magical light." "Storm" is a cover of a 1971 Stanley Turrentine song of the same name. Originally appearing on Rare Silk's 1985 album American Eyes, the sublime vocal harmonies and spacious arrangement (love the light percussion + sax work) had given "Storm" a cult status among diggers for years. Recently, the track has found a newer, wider audience thanks to a YouTube algorithm, and it stands at close to a million views on the popular video platform. In addition to the sought-after original, Be With Records and Emotional Response include a fine dub version courtesy of Alexis Georgopoulos aka ARP; he strips down the vocals and rearranges the instrumental, all the while employing a healthy amount of tape echo to really key in on the vibe. Essential!
