Electric Fetus

Spyro Gyra returns with first new album in 6 years. Inventive jazz covers of vinyl-era pop favorites.

Spyro Gyra's new release ''Vinyl Tap'', their first album of new material in six years, is sure to excite their worldwide fan base as well as to bring new listeners into the fold.

Never content to rest on their prodigious work of the past, they have once again challenged themselves to apply their iconic sound to an idea that makes this release stand out from all of its predecessors. With ''Vinyl Tap'', they have decided to craft an entire album of inventive jazz covers from pop favorites from the vinyl era. But these versions of familiar tunes will surprise the listener as well as entertain them. Whether it's turning Cream's ''Sunshine of Your Love'' into a Latin big band sound or making a tender ballad out of the Beatles' ''You've Got to Hide Your Love Away'', this release will impress at every turn. They weren't satisfied with just turning Johnny Rivers' 1960's hit ''Secret Agent Man'' into a rollicking party jam. They added an uptempo melody from ''Alfie's Theme'' to make something brand new, ''Secret Agent Mash''. There are also more conventional approaches with faithful versions of songs like War's ''The Cisco Kid'' and the Doobie Brothers' ''What a Fool Believes''. Spyro Gyra's haunting version of Blind Faith's ''Can't Find My Way Home'' is sure to become a fan favorite.
