Various - Cooperation Volume 1
Today many artists are guilty of being in the music business strictly for the dollar.  Sure, they may like music, but like Herby Luv Bug stated, they love money. That is why it's refreshing to see the formation of the Cooperation label.  True to its name, the close-knit band of musicians who set up the label have decided to check their egos as the door and concentrate on putting out quality tracks.

As noble as those intentions are, this set of exclusive tunes by the bigggest names on the West London circuit doesn't live up to the lineup.  The first couple of songs fail to inspire, particularly the Phil Asher/Mark De Clive Lowe collaboratoin "Blackcurrent," which seems to just plod along.

Thankfully, salvation comes in the form of Misa Negra's "Keep Your Head to the Sky."   The samba-filled groove kicks Cooperation into a second gear that gains momentum with typically solid work from Catalyst, Seiji, and Nu Era.
