Out Of Stock


4.80 39

A pretty sweet, reggae-steeped full length from Sydney 10-piece The Strides – who bring a real love Jamaican music into the pot, but it's a quite a diverse brew! The Strides glide along here with some jazzy funk, Afrobeat rhythms, some subtle modern flourishes and other boundless bits of inspiration – and they blend it all really well. Guests include Ras Roni, Ltl Gzeus and the tracks include "Storm Clouds" feat Ras Roni, Some O'Dem" feat Ltl Gzeus, "FKD (Farewell King Deuce-A-Mo)", "Umbi Gumbi", "Escape", "Reclamation" feat Ltl Gzeus, "Well Hung Parliament" and more. CD version also includes "Fresh Lady Dub" and "Storm Clouds Dub".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Mocambo (Germany), 2007. New Copy
Contemporary funk, but with a groove deep enough to warrant the "rare" promised in the title – as most of these numbers would stand strongly next to the best funky 45s from the late 60s and early 70s! The production is great throughout – very hard-edged, and with a back-to-bas ... CD

Imagenes (UK), 2013. New Copy
Los Charly's Orchestra rediscover the Big Apple – although given the group's strong approach to Latin music, it's hard to imagine that they'd ever forget the sound of New York! Yet this time around, there's an added element of Latin Soul in the mix – some touches of late 60s and early ... CD
