Don Shinn - Takes A Trip mp3 flac

Original album released March 1969 on Columbia Records. Track 6 Single A-side, 1966 as Don Shinn & The Soul Agents.

Takes A Trip ‎(CD, Album, Unofficial). Shinn’s music was atmospheric to say the least with his choice chords that were jazzy, filled with reverb and echoes, and created a visionary voice for his organ, one that was nearly octane driven, yet in a deliberate and considered manner.

Don Shinn (born Donald Shinn, 15 December 1945, Southampton, Hampshire) is an English keyboard player, t, composer, and vocalist. He is known primarily as an organist and pianist, and also plays vibraphone. In the early-mid 1960’s he recorded and performed with British Beat groups The MeddyEVILS, The Echoes (backing Dusty Springfield), and The Soul Agents (featuring Rod Stewart). In 1969 he released two instrumental albums, ‘Departures’, and ‘Temples With Prophets’ (aka 'Don Shinn Takes A Trip'). He was a member of the English band Dada (featuring Elkie Brooks) and appears on their eponymous album released in 1970. He has also worked with Kiki Dee, James Taylor, Engelbert Humperdinck, Stan Tracey, Persian vocalist Parvaneh Farid, Iguana, and Renaissance.

Keith Emerson it’s rather prophetically sad that Don Shinn should sit in the corner almost unrecognized to this day for the groundbreaking work he laid down
