To say DK and I were excited about this meeting would be an understatement of galactic proportions only equalled by the size of Herbie’s afro in the seventies. From our first encounter with him via ‘Rockit’ (along with virtually every B-Boy-to-be outside of the States in the 80′s) to his jazz, electronic, funk and disco eras we would later discover, this was a very big deal.
The cover of the CD was made up of slices from all of the records we discussed, each one showing part of a face from the original cover. A slice of Herbie from throughout his recording career – or the years we touched on in our interview – preferably including a face or eye from his record covers, one for each letter of his name. DK liked it so much he had me make up a poster for his studio, I think there are about ten handmade copies of this, mainly given out to friends but we sent one to Herbie too.
