Product Description

Reality-Reality-'72 Dutch/Caribbean Latin,Funk/Soul-NEW LP

Reality – Reality
Pseudonym Records ‎– VP99.072
Vinyl, LP, Album, Reissue, Remastered, Stereo, 180 Gram

Reality, originating from summer '70 was the first Caribbean Latin funk group in Amsterdam and even the whole of the Netherlands. With their self-titled debut album, Franky Douglas (guitar), Tony Sherman (vocals), Roël Burnet (percussion), Glenn Gaddum (organ) and Leslie Vos (vocals) presented a highlight in the burgeoning Dutch Latin, funk and soul scene. Just like the second album 'Tony And Reality', the LP has become a coveted collector's item that people paid large sums of money for. Pseudonym Records is very proud to present the first legitimate reissue of 'Reality', remastered from the original tapes, and with the full cooperation of the band. From now on, Reality's music is available to everyone. The album 'Reality' (1972), with the sensitive and still up-to-date 'War', contains the original artwork. Reality later continued under the name Solat.

Reality was started in 1970 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, by 8 musicians from Surinam, Curacao and Aruba.

They released their first, untitled album in 1972 on Blue Elephant.

Their second, also untitled album was released in 1973 on Sound Records (9) as Tony And Reality. In 1973 lead singer Tony Sherman went solo and Reality changed their name into Solat, teaming up with singer Billy Jones (3). Solat released a couple of singles and recorded with Hans Dulfer as Dulfer & Perikels.
