Funky Sounds from Central Africa
I guess this is the kind of record that would scream “grab me” even to the most casual of record browsers so I feel extra lucky it fell into my greedy hands. This is a very rare compilation released in the Netherlands by some forward souls at Philips. The bulk of the 12 tracks, although very nice, only tentatively ventures into jazzy or R&B styles, if at all. There are, however, two tracks by Rex Williams that more than meet the cover-induced expectations. This guy had a very tight and wild afro funk act heavy on the organ and with fresh, clean guitar. Check out the slower of the two, the infectious happy day, before having yourself a party with ererimbot ayafung oko. Wow!
