SurpriseBelieve Me ... LP
Beau Monde (France), 1983. New Copy ... $19.99
A wicked bit of 80s electro soul – one that's heavy on Yamaha keyboards and beats, but which was also recorded in Gabon – which gives the whole record a very different sound than New York material of the time! The rhythms are definitely in the funky soul side of the spectrum, but have ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album
