Brian Auger – Search Party #recordswap

Anyone know that brain-scrambling synth-strumental on the first side of Stevie Wonder’s Songs in the Key of Life, “Contusion?

Brian Auger’s 1981 record Search Party is basically six “Contusions” in a row. Imagine a small army of synthesizers and a Hammond playing completely different songs at the same time. If you like the sound of that, you’ll love Search Party.

Is his name pronounced “Aw-ger” or “Oh-jay”?

Is this guy getting paid by the key change?

Was the abrupt end partway through the last song intentional, or just a flaw in the pressing? Either way, was it a giant relief?

Come take Search Party off our hands and you can decide.
