West Indie Funk

Here is the tropical gem "Funky Stuff" by the group Dutch Rhythm, Steel & Show Band. This soulful cut was originally released back in 1975 off of the group's Soul, Steel & Show album and most recently included on the superb Trans Air Records compilation West Indie Funk, which features a number of rare funky Caribbean gems. For those that enjoyed Trans Air's first compilation release Disc'o'Lypso, I highly recommend checking out West Indie Funk. Some of the other highlights from the record include Syd Jones & The Troubadours' "Cardova", East Side Symphony's "Hot Pants Road", The Esso Trinidad Steel Band's steel drum-infused cover of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" and The Troubadours' heavy-hitting psychedelic gem "No Names Bar". Overall, West Indie Funk is a great release that brings together some of the most rare and obscure tropical-flavored titles from the Caribbean region. Enjoy!
