Best of Perception Today Records

My friend Patrick recently sent me this excellent compilation on BBE put together by DJ Spinna of the Perception and Today labels that’s full of sample sources, cover versions and obscure crate digger’s classics ranging from funk and soul to jazz and bossa nova. I recognized some of the more obvious names like Dizzy Gillespie and Astrud Gilberto, but for the most part this was the best kind of education on a small but highly influential label from the New York of the 60’s and 70’s that may have been forgotten if not for reissue projects like these.
