✨✧ VariousFunk Revival – Sounds From The Subtropics ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible funk from the Miami scene – most of it done with heavily Cuban roots! The tracks here are mostly from the wonderful Sound Triangle label – a tiny Florida imprint that focused on capturing sounds that were neither funk nor soul, jazz nor Latin – but a unique hybrid of all their best elements – brought to Florida by ex-patriot Cubans, and simmered down into a wicked new blend! There's a sharpness here that's really wonderful – a heavily percussive quality on most numbers that rivals the best funky 45s from up north at the time – but which also has plenty of Latin touches too, as you'd hear on some of the most soulful sides from Fania, or the growing Chicano scene in LA. A few of the names here are familiar from important reissues over the years, but the set's also overflowing with a lot more lesser-known gems as well – a whole new territory in funky music, with tremendous tracks all the way through! Titles include "Abacua" by Manteca, "No Quiero Que Te Vayas" by Signs Of The Zodiac, "La Inflacion De Ofelia" by Oscar Pena, "Soul Freedom" by Ray & His Court, "Bun Bun Bun" by Coke, "Jungle Walk" by Pearly Queen, "Make Your Move" by Wild Wind, "Keep On Bumpin" by Clockwork, "Borriquito" by Peter Fernandez, "Fantasy Of Love" by Mantrap, "Quit Jivin" by Pearly Queen, "Nana" by Coke, "Los Feligreses" by Luis Santi, "Algo Sabroso" by Nelson Padron, "Watermelon Man" by Pepe Delgado, and "De Eso Nada Monado" by Ray & His Court.
