Nemperor (1977)

This is one of those records that no one seems to know but should be snatched up whenever you see it in the dollar-bin. It's Jan "Miami Vice" Hammer doing some serious fusion jams with his keytar (Kent Lambert, lookin' at you.) There's a few decent tracks on here, but the first cut on side two, "Don't You Know," is just a delight. It was a favorite leadoff-track for mixtapes for me for a while. I think I heard the slightly-wicked-sounding bubbly synth bass intro from that track used as a sample on a This American Life bumper recently.

Anyway, classy design layout for Nemperor here.
