CLEM ALFORD - MIRROR IMAGE (Magic Carpet MC 1003 CD) CD 60mBilled as "The Electronic Sitar of Clem Alford" this mid-70's solo album by the sitar player from Magic Carpet is every bit as good as it was reputed to be. A surprise really, in that I wasn't too keen on the Magic Carpet LP, which had a way overblown reputation, but this is a truly creative album, made even more enjoyable by four bonus tracks recorded in 1990.Side 1 of the original LP, the 14 minute Mirror Image itself, is an excellent example of ethno-jazz fusion, its amplified sitar through a wah-wah pedal, with piano, guitar, bass and drums backing, it's like Embryo blended with Popol Vuh. The second side of the LP had Raga Kirwani and Raga Charukeshi each at 8 minutes, combining sitar, tanpura and tablas, into a much more progressive music than Ravi Shankar, closest in feel to Al Gromer and Popol Vuh's YOGA.Moving on sixteen years, Clem Alford proves to still be just as much an innovator. Combining computer synthesized and sampled sounds with sitar and flute on the tracks: Apocalypse and Morning Storm, he takes us to the darker realms of ethnic new-age music. Raga Khamaj then, in contrast, offers a return to purely traditional Indian realms being only sitar and tabla. Finally we end with the drone invocation Colours in which the sitar blends in with a gently oscillating "Om" texture - the ideal ending!review by Alan Freeman from Audion magazine 33 (1995).
