Akido

CD (Item 591657) Mercury/Kismet (UK), 1972 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.80 32

An obscure Afro Funk combo from the early 70s – produced by Ronnie Lane of The Faces, who may very well have been inspired by Ginger Baker's love of the style! The record's got some pretty heavy guitar work, and there's lots of funky rock running through the grooves – so those African-inspired rhythms are touched by more than a bit of heavy tripped out electric fuzz. Titles include "Wajo", "Awade", "Happy Song", "Psychedelic Baby", "Midnight Lady", "Blow", and "Confusion".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
