Funky Friday – Latino Lovelies


Hola! Hola! Hola – it’s all gone Channel 9 and Mondo Bossa shaped for todays fistful of funky numbers, revolutionary remakes and south american shakedowns – so fill your botas mi amigos.

Ándale! Ándale! Arriba! Arriba!
It’s Wah-wah and bongo a go-go from Willie Bobo
Willie Bobo – ‘Always There’

Scorchio!
There’s a rootin’ tootin’ tropical tear up by way of…
Mongo Santamaria – ‘Lady Marmlade’

Muchos Gracias
To Nanker for putting this loco cover on my musical map –
Pucho and his Latin Soul Brothers – ‘Sex machine’

And finally ¡Salud! to Budd for tipping me off about Freakpower’s ‘Rush’ which samples Pucho’s ‘Got Myself A Good Man’

Back to the usual Rioja and Roll next week hombres
