Although a rather short album, Closer To It can be considered Brian's Closest To IT, because of the infinitely positive vibes exuding from this album. Easily Brian's top album, he still plays a mot f tracks from this album in concerts three decades later. In some ways, Brian's second Oblivion Express hit the summit on the first try, but itwould be downhill from now on. For good and for bad. I loved Auger's some earlier works with TrinityJulie Driscoll and some early Oblivion Express heavy-organ based albums. This one is different thing. Very professional in technique and up to time in moment of release, it contains excellent Latin fusion. Listen free to Brian Auger's Oblivion Express Closer to It Whenever You're Ready, Happiness Is Just Around the Bend and more. 6 tracks 36:07. British keyboard maestro Brian Auger achieved something virtually unheard of with this classic album upon its 1973 release. Closer To It, Brian's heady mix of jazz, soul, funk and rock entered the US Billboard Jazz, R 'n' B and Rock charts simultaneously He had done such a great job blending and blurring musical boundaries. Closer to It Extra Tracks, Remastered. Brian Auger's Oblivion Express Format: Audio CD. We can all listen to this remarkable album and wonder what it might have been like if Alex Ligertwood had sung on it. Or how it would have been less dated if Brian had resisted the urge to use a synth or two. But then, we can rejoice in the musicianship, the fabulous arrangements, the funky material, and the reality that Brian is a tolerable singer. One of the better early funk jazz fusion albums, Closer To It's plentiful qualities very quickly distract from its few shortcomings. Brian had been forging this very single minded path for nearly ten years previously in various groups The Steampacket and then The Trinity with Julie Driscoll his avowed aim to overlay funk, pop and soul rhythms with jazz harmony and solos.
