From Cult Cargo: Grand Bahama Goombay (Numero Group, 2007)
Second Opus for Cult Cargo serie. The deep funk tunes from Bahama recall me the compilation Panama! released last year on Soundway. Preceded by Belize Boil Up, Grand Bahama Goombay is full wah wah charged and propose some deep covers. Besides the excellent Jay Mitchell's Funky Fever was allready available on the compilation The Kings Of Diggin'. With this Cult Cargo you'll listen some covers such as 'I Am The Man For You Baby', 'Take Five', 'Theme From Shaft' and 'Mustang Sally'. The other Jay Mitchell tune called 'Goombay Bump' place these comp' between Rufus Thomas's Do The Funky Chicken, The Beggining Of The End's Funky Nassau and in a way Funky 16 Corners.
