Bongos For Beatniks

CD (Item 914728) Blow Up (UK), 2011 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

Groovy funk with spacey and earthy touches from London's Bongolian! Bongolian is the longtime project of one man funk orchestra Nasser Bouzida –-also the frontman of fellow Blow Up funk combo Big Boss Man – pulling off a live band sound that's as rich and far-reaching as anyone in the UK funk scene over the past decade! He always deftly covers a lot of territory – organ & percussive funk, cosmic keys and wild rhythms of all kinds. On Bongos For Beatniks, Bongololian brings in some more globally flavored soundscapes – from Latin boogaloo and beyond, madly fused with a pulpy funk of all stripes. Bouzida plays all kinds of keys, bongos, drums, clavient, cowell, shakers, strings and occasionally sings – with help on trombone on a handful of numbers by Tom Brady and violin on one by Margaret Ellwood. Includes "The Riviera Affair", "Moscow Queen", "Strange Lover", "Pretty Bertie", "Bongolian Dream", "Tortoise Walk". 13 tracks on the CD.  © 1996-2019, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Choppy New Orleans styled funk in the tradition of the Meters, and recorded with a lot of fidelity to the original sound. Not as amazing as the original, natch, but still surprisingly funky with a good earthy sound to it. Tracks include "Go Go", "Everybody Wants Some (parts 1-3)&quo ... CD
