I have bought some Belgian funk

Postby GoogaMooga » 04 Jun 2020, 13:19

BELGIAN SOUL FUNK IN 1972
Cult album "Chakachas" finally gets reissue. Could this be my first Belgian CD? Funky they call it - more poly-rhythmic to my ears. Jungle Fever" is on there, their fluke hit, and more moans and groans and heavy breathing. This is sexy music, sexy party funk to get things going. Itzaah... houserocking dance tunes done in a floorshaker style...

Excuse my poor attempt at humor.

Excellent point. No Belgium, no James Brown. :o
