Release The Beat

As you might of noticed, I didn't update this site yesterday. The reason for this is because I received a nasty virus lat in the afternoon which pretty much disabled my computer from getting on the Internet. I believe I've destroyed the virus, however it seems like there was plenty of damage left behind. I am now updating this blog on my wife's (Thanks Stace!) laptop until I can purchase a new one, which I am doing in the next day or two. I had already planned to buy a new computer, however this annoying incident has definitely sped up the process. So for about a week, my updates my be a little more sporadic (I apologize). I'll do my best to continue to update this site the best I can for the next week or so until I'm back at full strength.

That being said, here is the track and post I meant to share with you yesterday. By the way the file is clean so you don't have to worry about me passing along a virus to you. Thanks again for every one's support. It's just another incident in the life of me right now.

Here is one of my favorite tracks from Honest Jon's recently re-issued record compilation of Cedric "Im" Brooks' finest recordings. This funky cut, titled "Africa", has an overall Afro-beat/ Fela Kuti groove that I think disco enthusiasts can enjoy. I can't say that I can totally get into all of the Jamaican saxophonist's music, as I find that some of his songs are a bit too Reggae sounding for personal taste, however he does have plenty of selections on this compilation that fans of Fela Kuti and Afro-beat can really enjoy. Anyways, have a fun Halloween and be safe!

just discovered your blog, and have to say I'm already glued to each post, personal and yet inspiring to check the tunes. Keep up the good work, I now have a face to the cabana disco ep I picked up over at Juno. Cheers.
