RICKY WOMACK AND CHRISTIAN ESSENCE - LP - The Victory



Fully gospel style but rather soulful here in this beautiful and very rare album, released in 83" on Morada Records. All track are very listenable with titles sometimes explosive like "Something Better Out Of Me" with a demoniac break which makes you really wanna move, and  sometimes very cool as "No Choice" for example! I've choosen these 4 samples in a funky way but the pearl is "The Victory" !!! What a boogie-gospel-funk amazing track !!??!!! It starts with couple of piano-bass and then the incredible Ricky's voice blows your mind directly...just like magic ! The background vocals doin' their job even if the sample is not enough to enjoy it, but trust me..it's just wonderful, clapping their hands....Crazy !!!!

MEMORY OF JUSTICE BAND - LP - Mash Down Babylon



Direction to the Caribbean, or more precisely CAYMAN ISLANDS ! Located not far from jamaica, this overseas territory of the United States reserves us some surprises in matters of Funk oriented reggae  !
This album proves it. Released in 83" on PLATINUM EXPRESS Recording produced by Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare (Sly & Robbie). Besides the pieces that interest us,  Robbie is on bass and guitar! !
2 rockets attract my attention ! One Boogie-Funk titled "Give me Love" and the other Reggae-Funk titled "Power" !!! 
Enjoy ...
