A fantastic full length set from the Bacao Rhythm
& Steel Band
– a group who've really won us over in recent years with a fast flurry of funky 45s! The group take an older steel band
sound, and forge it to a might tighter rhythm
ic impulse – with a sound that's often even funkier than the best (and few) funky steel band
tracks from the 70s – served up with razor-sharp instrumentation, and great production in a Daptone/
Soul Fire mode – which really keeps things sounding raw all the way through! The group's got strong ties to the Mighty Mocambos – and some other contemporary funk acts too – and the music is top-shelf all the way through, a funkier full steel band
record than you'll ever hope to find. Titles include "Beetham Highway Ride", "Scorpio", "Pimp", "Tropical Heat", "Laventille Road March", "Round & Round", "Port Of Spain Hustle", "Jungle Fever", "Love Like This", and "Dog Was A Doughnut".
