Various Artists - Mr Bongo Record Club Volume OneMr Bongo
Just when you think there are no more hidden gems to be found, Mr Bongo continues to impress us. Once again they have blessed us with loads of obscure quality recordings from their massive vault. The new compilation "Mr Bongo Record Club Volume One" features a myriad of musical styles from artists from around the world. With twenty tracks in tow, there's much to savor here. "Seara De Oxala is Brailian funk by Barbosa. "Fish & Funjee" is African Psychedelic funk from Lantei Lampley. "El Mercado" is a very hard to find fusion recording from Venezuelan guitarist Alex Rodriguez. In order to get into this club you must bring plenty of funk and lay down some good grooves. All the artists here have gone well beyond that. This is a superb collection that will provide instant satisfaction.
