The Numero Group has released many, many awesome compilations and Cult Cargo: Grand Bahama Goombay does not disappoint. Think Caribbean-influenced funk with a highly rhythmic sense of soul. This particular track by Cyril Ferguson is especially funk flavored and it’s title, "Gonna Build a Nation", is evocative of Parliament-Funkadelic. Numero Group 1975.
Coming off the soundtrack to a failed Blaxploitation movies, this tambourine jam, "We Can Work It Out" , features great harmony singing by vocal funk group The Final Solution. After changing their name in the early 70s, the band was hired to record the soundtrack for the blaxploitation film never made: Brotherman. The soundtrack contains a great mixture of funky and smooth tracks as well as some stunning instrumentals. Numero Group 2008.
