LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 6

Heavy funk from the Mexican scene of the early 70s – a great little combo that blends together equal parts soul, rock, and jazz! Grupo Oz are clearly influenced by some of the jazzier groups going down on the west coast Latin scene of the time – and like many of those groups, they also bring in a good deal of heavy guitar as well – riffing along with the funky rhythms of the tracks in a heady Chicano brew! There's plenty of jamming on the set, but the main focus is on the rhythms – really rumbling around at the bottom end of the bass range, and topped by some tasty horns and the occasional soulful English language vocal! The best cuts almost get into a tripped-out groove, thanks to the album's fuzzy guitar – and titles include "Miss Thing", "Sneak", "ACG Groove", "Fly", "Oz Machine", "Robin's Song" and "A New Day". (This reissue on Secret Stash includes a code for the full album download plus 2 bonus tracks!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
