Psychedelic Deep Funk is Gonna Get You!


The Invaders - Spacing Out

Deep Deep Funk! If you like the sound of the NY Desco/Daptone label (eg Sugarman Three), you gotta dig this. All instrumental, funky congas & flute, an occasional latin touch, psychedelic echoes..... just how I like it Baby! Some say it's a bunch of Americans jamming in the Europe at the end of the Sixties, others claim it as hailing from The Bermudas, released in 1970. Mysterious origins always ad a nice touch to a rare (as in hard-to-obtain) funk album.....The original album on Duane Records seems to have been on ebay for $ 700 (personally I hate, and would never buy, any record over $ 50). The re-issue on BadAssss Records (mine is white-labelled) is way more affordable and probably sounds better......includes two versions of the James Brown classic It's my Thing and The Meters' monstertune Look a Py Py....

Tracklist It's Your Thing, Lost Time, The House That Jack Built, Look A Py Py, Bossa Blue, Spacing Out, Where We Are, Latin Lips, It's Your Thing Part Two.

Credits Congas: Sturgis, Trumpet: Ralph, Sax & Flute: Lloyd, Bass: Stan, Guitar: John, Drums: Mike, Engineered by Ian, Produced by Jean-Paul.
