Belize City Boil Up

Lord Rhaburn Combo's funky "Disco Connection" is one of the many standout tracks from the Numero Group's excellent compilation Cult Cargo: Belize City Boil Up. This compilation focuses on the hard-to-find music produced by musicians of Belize, both in their native country and in the States, between 1967 and 1980. This record explores many different genres of music including early disco, funk, latin soul, boogaloo, dub, and many others. Personal favorites on the record include Jesus Acosta & The Professionals' latin-jazz flavoured "Guajida", Lord Rhaburn's "Boogaloo A La Chuck", and The Professionals' dubbed out version of "Theme From The Godfather". Overall, the record showcases a pretty impressive and diverse collection of music from this small, yet sprawling metropolis country within Central American.

I copped this album a few years ago when it first came out, and "disco connection" was a big spin for me. Glad to see it is still getting the respect it deserves!
