✈

An incredible musical discovery – and some really mindblowing grooves from a previously untapped source! As the title implies, Panama's a real crossroads of musical styles – bits of Latin, funk, and other Caribbean influences – all simmering together in the hot sun of the Isthmus, cooking up in grooves that are totally unique! The style here is still funk-based enough to appeal to fans of African or Brazilian grooves from the same period – but there's lots of unusual instrumental touches, twists, and turns that really make these tracks sparkle – a bit like some of the work from Belize on Numero's groundbreaking collection! As always with Soundway, the collection of tracks is no mistake – and each tune is presented with notes on the material and other helpful details – all to enforce the groove-conscious collection of music! Plenty funky throughout, and with a total of 15 tracks that includes "New Bag" by The Exciters, "Panama Esta Bueno Y Ma" by Los Exagerados, "Viva Panama" by Papi Brandao & Sus Ejecutivos, "Con Los Caballeros" by Los Caballeros De Colon, "Old Buzzard" by Los Silvertones, "Viva Tirado" by Los Mozambiques, "Let Me Do My Thing" by Los Dinamicos Exiters, "Soy Solo Para Ti" by Victor Boa Y Su Musica, "Nana Nina" by Busy Y Sus Magnificos, "Exciters Theme" by The Exciters, and "Descarga Tentacion" by Bolita Y Su Tentacion Latina.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

These early Osibisa records always used to be fairly common years back – perhaps because they were always a bit too hippy dippy and loose for the older funk crowd. But now, in today's blunted groove culture, they seem to have found a new appreciation for their trippy Afro funk style, and ... CD
