Afro Funk – “Body Music” – [Secret Stash]

MSTiZA   5/2/2012   12-inch, International

Secret Stash[Minneapois, MN] ??has unearthed this guitar, horn, and groove driven soul funk from 1973. Originally released by Kabana Records and recorded in Ghana at Weird Sound Studios. It features William Edozie, Johhny Kpayie, Tyrone Patterson, and Richard Dejohnette. ??Edozie was also featured on Congas and Percussion on the Nigerian release, Someone to Love by Bassey Black. It’s my assumption that his ??skills were lent to the percussion on this release. Tyrone[T.R.] Patterson was credited with Producer on this, but also co/wrote several tracks on this album. You won’t find traditional African vocals. The west’s influence is stamped throughout “Body Music”. There are hints of Shuggie Otis[A3], Stevie [B1], Isaac Hayes/Shaft, and some Carribean rhythms with JBs style horns.

Instrumentals: A2, B2, B3
