BBE Music announces the first repress of the classic Roy Ayers albums 'Virgin Ubiquity' 1
and 2 since 2006, on luxurious 180g vinyl with brand new sleeve notes written by Sean P.
The music on 'Virgin Ubiquity' was selected and mixed down from previously unreleased
multi-tracks recorded between 1976 & 1981, which Roy had in storage. It's all unmistakably
Ayers, but is diverse and fresh enough to be more than a mere adjunct to one of his most
productive and popular periods - testament to his and his musicians' creative abilities, as
much of most revered Ayers output stems from this time.
These discoveries take their place beside some illustrious company in a timeline bookended
by 'Everybody Loves The Sunshine' and 'Africa, Center Of The World', several solo and
Ubiquity albums, collaborations with Wayne Henderson & Fela Kuti, as well as guesting on
LPs by Buster Williams and Herbie Mann.
Out of print on vinyl and CD for over a decade now, BBE is delighted to re- present these
groundbreaking Roy Ayers titles, neatly coinciding with the 45th anniversary of his classic
album 'Mystic Voyage' and a UK tour to commemorate it during April 2020.
