Darwin's Theory LP on Lotus Land Records & Tapes

1ST EVER RELEASE from material that was recorded in 1978, Lotus Land Records brings you the amazing music of Darwin's Theory, the music of Darwin Jones as recorded at Sly Stone's (Sly & the Family Stone) personal home studio with an unknown band from Tulsa Oklahoma. While Darwin was doing session work at Sly's studio he made a strong connection with the engineer and was granted permission to record his strongest songs.

Here we have a 8 song LP featuring the heavier funk, and the more danceable-dj-able tunes from the sessions. On the 16 song CD we are featuring everything from the full session at Sly's studio, including two alternate takes and some demos that the band actually wrote in the studio (allegedly one of the tunes was started by the band finish a melody that Sly was whistling as he left the studio).

ALL of the material was unreleased prior to Lotus Land's release save "Accept the Truth" which was released on a 200 press demo 45 on Darwin's Theory Records from 1978.

The material was mastered from 1/2" tape, preserved by Darwin since the initial recordings. All material was transferred by Len at History of Recorded Sound (Culver City, CA) and mastered by Marcin Nowak in Los Angeles.


What a way to start the new year, thanks Lotus Land!
