Never Turn Your Back on Africa

Here is another "Africa-themed" disco classic, simply titled Africa by the JKD Band. This funky gem is included on the group's 1979 album Dragon Power. The record was produced by both Henry Hadaway and Paul Jenkins. Even though the title track "Dragon Power", as well as the cover art of the album pays tribute to Bruce Lee, the whole record doesn't necessarily focus on the martial arts icon. Other great track include "Let Your Body Do The Talking", "Dream Machine", "Hooked On The Boogie", and of course "Dragon Power". Overall, this album is a disco gem and a nice find for anyone who is lucky enough to find a copy...Never turn your back on Africa!

I originally got this track from your great blog. Thank you. Loved the groove but found the vocals a little on the, shall we say, tacky side so just finished this edit and thought you might enjoy:
