Ethereal Magic is a concept and compilation by one of the UK’s most highly regarded and longest serving DJ and member of the UK soul music community, Tony Monson. Tony started DJ-ing on ZBM Radio in Bermuda from 1963-1967; then briefly was with offshore pirate Britain Radio 355 in 1967. In 1971-76, co-owner of Sound Unlimited in Brighton, which had the best selection of soul 7″ in the South outside London; then had his own shop at Worlds End, London, called Disc Empire from 1978-1981. From1981-1989; then more recently, from late 1998 onwards – he has exclusively involved with Solar Radio – first on analogue, and later on Sky and the net. Along the way he created a trademark feature of his radio show, ‘Ethereal Magic’, a time to take it easy, relax and indulge in some of the most breataking mellow moments, this first CD collection offering moments both exclusive and for the first time on CD alongside tracks by classic artists.
A totally wonderful little compilation – one that starts with a great array of 70s and 80s spacey soul, then throws in a few sweet AOR cuts, and even a few contemporary numbers too – all in this laidback, mellow-grooving style that's totally great! The whole thing's way different than the usual funk or soul compilation – and different than some of the recent AOR retrospectives, too – in that compiler Tony Monson really goes for a special vibe here, and hangs together tracks you wouldn't expect to fit so well – thanks to lots of jazzy currents and a deep blend of electric and acoustic elements.
Keep Smiling is the second studio album released by the Danish pop group Laid Back.
