about

Recorded against the musical tide of Brit Pop, Samuel Purdey’s mid-90s album “Musically Adrift” was exactly that; right record, wrong time. A little known classic, shelved by Sony records and released only in Japan, it remains a timeless body of work.
Samuel Purdey - Brighton duo of Barney Hurley and Gavin Dodds, joined on record by amongst others Elliot Randall of Steely Dan and pianist Neil Cowley (Neil Cowley Trio) - expected their perfectly crafted love letter to AOR, soul and funk to remain an obscure rarity, until it was stumbled upon by music library obsessive Tim ‘Love’ Lee.
Rediscovered, repackaged and re-mastered, the lost treasure Musically Adrift will be released on Tummy Touch on August 12th.
With expert song writing, exquisite arrangements and mind blowing musicianship at the heart of the album a nod is given to the Blue Eyed Soul and soft rock approach that aligned with their influences; Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, Boz Scaggs, Earth Wind & Fire and Tower Of Power.
Mixed by multi-Grammy winner Elliot Scheiner and Bob Power (D’ Angelo, Erykah Badu) the pedigree of this cult gem is further validated by the extensive use of well regarded session musicians; ‘70s session guitarist Elliott Randall (responsible for among other things his legendary solo on Steely Dan’s “Reelin’ In The Years”), Robbie Gordon (Gil Scott Heron bassist), Frank Floyd (known for his vocal work on Steely Dan's Gaucho and Donald Fagen's The Nightfly), as well as original Jamiroquai bassist Stuart Zender, and Jan Kincaid and Andrew Levy of The Brand New Heavies.
This ‘Remastered’ version is available on CD and Digital download from Tummy Touch Records.
And for the first time on Vinyl (180 grams in thick tip-on jackets) via the legendary RAK label.
