Album artwork for Lifeline by Roy Ayers

Lifeline, Roy Ayers Ubiquity’s inimitable, influential 1977 fusion of jazz, pop, funk, and disco, will be reissued on vinyl in honor of the album’s 40th anniversary. Among the most popular of the prolific vibraphonist-keyboardist-composer-vocalist Ayers’ 20 albums for the label; the record is best known for containing one of the jazz-funk pioneer’s most popular tracks and biggest singles, “Running Away,” which peaked at No. 19 on the R&B chart and became a massive club hit with its irresistible disco-funk groove. Other compelling tracks on the set include the compulsively rhythmic Cincinnati Growl, the euphoric, horn-laded Sanctified Feeling, the lush ballad Gotta Find a Lover, and the jubilant acid jazz closer Together
