Eumir Deodato - Knights of Fantasy (1979)

After the last Eumir Deodato release at Loronix I received several requests for this album, which is probably one of the most unknown Eumir Deodato record. I was lucky to take it from an old vinyl shop for a bargain, as you can see at the post opening picture, the cover has a big hole in the left, but the vinyl was perfect, resulting on very nice digital files. Let's see how Loronixers have to say about this obscure Eumir Deodato album.

This is Eumir Deodato - Knights of Fantasy (1979), for WEA. Eumir Deodato delivers a melt of Jazz-fusion, disco and funk music with nice instrumental performances based on Deodato's compositions and a rendition of Jesus Joy's of Man's Desiring from Johann Sebastian Bach. The album has some killer guitar solos and groovy bass lines with highlight to the track that gives the album name, Knights of Fantasy. Tracks include:

01 - Space Dust (Eumir Deodato) Sherlock (Eumir Deodato)
02 - Shazam (Eumir Deodato)
03 - Jesu Joy Of Man's Desiring (Johann Sebastian Bach) Love Is Blue (P. Cour / André Popp) Whistle Bump (Eumir Deodato)
04 - Knights Of Fantasy (Eumir Deodato)
05 - Lovely Lady (Eumir Deodato)

Oi Zeca,
Não resistiu e resolvi botar mais um Deodato no Loronix !? Ainda q não seja dos álbuns mais brilhantes do grande músico, sempre vale a pena conhecer.
Abs,

OLÁ, EU TENHO QUE DIZER: EU PROCURAVA ESSE DISCO HÁ MUITO TEMPO. EU TINHA ELE, MAS NÃO ME LEMBRO MAIS PORQUE ME LIVREI DELE. ESSE DISCO TEM UMAS FAIXAS DEMASIADAMENTE DISCO, COMERCIAL NA ÉPOCA, MAS A ÚLTIMA, LOVELY LADY, É EUMIR DE PRIMEIRA LINHA!

Thanks for posting this very hard to find Deodato's album.

Até o "pior" de Deodato é, em vários sentidos, muito superior ao melhor de certos "grandes" artistas que andam por aí.

Thanks for post this album. I searched it a lot of time. In my younger age I was a Deodato's fan.
In agree for this, I want introduce you to another interesting keyboardist named Hugo Fattoruso.
