As I was doing a little "house-keeping" on my blog roll today, I noticed that many of those blogs and sites that I have had listed (for example i.e. Donna Slut, Lovefingers, T.M.L, etc.) have called it quits for one reason or another. I was actually fairly shocked to see that so many sites within the last year have decided to end their run. It was a quick reminder of the many times I have actually considered ending this site, to only however choose to expand and evolve the blog's platform musically instead. I hope that everyone who has been coming back to this site for years continues to enjoy the music I share, even though it certainly has expanded from disco into other sub genres like Afrobeat, Latin Jazz, etc. The reason I continue to keep this site going is for the simple fact that I love sharing music, and as long as their is an audience for that, I will continue to do it. So, thanks to everyone once again who continues to stop by the site daily, weekly, or just once in awhile. It is greatly appreciated.
Now on to the music...
Here is a funky African gem titled "Black Water Gold (Pearl)" by the African Music Machine. This was the title track off the group's early seventies album. Even though the song has a heavy African inspired sound, the group was actually based out of New Orleans. The album that this track is featured on, Black Water Gold, was reissued a few years back and can now be found a lot more easily (even though I'm not a big fan of reissues). Overall, the funky gem is a solid soulful track that features some nice instrumental breaks. Enjoy!
