South African Man

Let's start the week off with probably my all-time favorite Hamilton Bohannon song in "South African Man". This funky cut was the title track to Bohannon's 1974 hard-to-find album release. The South African Man LP probably represents one of Bohannon's rarest releases. The album is solid from start to finish, including other standout cuts like "Keep on Dancing", "Truck Stop", "Dance With Your Parno" and a few others. The entire record has a bit of a heavy-hittin' Afro-funk groove throughout which really helps separate this release from some of Bohannon's other more "disco-fied" records. An absolute gem!
