“The First Coming” by Twylyte ’81

Favorite Recordings has been a guarantor for many years when it comes to releasing long lost soul, funk, jazz and West Coast gems. This February the French label released the first official and first-ever reissue of “The First Coming” by Twylyte ’81.

Twylyte ’81 was a band consisting of Frank Jones Jr., Alfred Brown Jr. and John Belzaguy, who, except for John, have never recorded anything else than this incredible album.

“The First Coming” convinced with superb compositions and a excellent blend of Soul, Jazz, and Disco. A real discovery is the amazing deep and spiritual voice of the band leader, Frank Jones Jr. Even more impressive is the fact that these three musicians were all less or close to 18 years old when composing and recording this beauty.

“The First Coming” is one of the great (re-)discoveries of the year and, thanks to Favorite Recordings, secured for future generations of listeners.
