Mike Lundy - The Rhythm of Life (AGS-LP001)
The Rhythm Of Life is Mike Lundy’s only LP, recorded in 1979 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Inspired by bands like Tower Of Power and Earth, Wind & Fire, The Rhythm Of Life claims its identity in the funk-and-soul universe with inventive arrangements, clever rhythms, and a timeless quality that transcends the notion of what music from Hawaii should sound like.
There couldn’t have been a more perfect collaboration with which to launch the Aloha Got Soul label. Working with Mike has been a blessing. Coincidence has found us time after time along our journey. We share a mutual respect for each other’s honesty and we believe in the power of music that comes from the soul. By placing his complete trust in me to re-present his music to today’s audience, Mike has given me the confidence and experience to make Aloha Got Soul a successful record label.
In a landscape that’s been transformed by time, commercialization, and the internet, the music of Hawaii’s past is beckoning to make waves once again. I’d like to make sure this time it won’t go unnoticed.
