MILLION DOLLAR ECSTACY "s/t" SYNTH BOOGIE FUNK REISSUE LP
The enigmatic electro/synth funk artist known as Million Dollar Ecstacy is actually the work of multi-instrumentalist songwriter Schyl Perry. In 1987, Perry released this self-titled eight song private press 12‰ on the Sacred Light label.
Drawing from influences both expected (Michael Jackson, Prince, Quincy Jones) and unexpected (Kiss, Jackie Wilson and L.L. Cool J), this unique and seldom-heard record exhibits some of the most adventurous electro-funk sounds of its era, accompanied by colorful samples and bold instrumental flourishes. Lyrically, Perry’s songs illustrate the disparities he observed in the world around him at the time: the greed and projected opulence of ‘80’s Oakland street culture, as well as the darker implications of the crack epidemic of the time.
The album has experienced a renewed interest among collectors in the ensuing years, often fetching more than $150 for original copies. Manufactured Recordings is proud to make this lost classic available again for the first time in 28 years. This CD reissue includes all 8 original tracks, as well as never before released photos of Perry, liner notes and an interview conducted by noted hip-hop/ funk collector and columnist Chairman Jeff Mao, all of which are unique to this release.
