What did I get you for Valentines Day, my pretties? Perhaps some hot romantic grooves to get you in the mood for some tongue fu? Of course fucking not. Instead, please enjoy a 1975 album by the younger brother of martial arts legend Bruce Lee. Parts of this album are heartfelt tributes to the Little Dragon and his martial arts discipline, JKD ("The art of the intercepting fist"), parts are borderline boogie rock. And there's the obligatory Beatles cover (This Boy.) My favorite track is probably Pointing Finger; it's got a killer music box intro that I would totally sample if I were a rapper, and some hot kung flute pipin'. The spidery acoustic guitar intro that connects Parting, a poem Bruce left behind, with the Ballad of Bruce Lee is so Lindsey Buckingham that it almost made me do coke off an old silk scarf.
All in all, this is a pretty interesting little album. They had two sealed copies of this at Record Surplus, I have to wonder who ended up with the other one. Happy JKDVD!
