C.S. Crew - Funky PackLabel: Cultures of Soul Records
The C.S. Crew's Funky Pack can be best described as Nigeria's own blend of Kool and the Gang, Mandrill and the Ohio Players with a Moog synthesizer thrown in for good measure. Reissued for the first time this late 70s Nigerian raw funk masterpiece album includes bonus tracks from the related group Youths of the Universe, and liner notes written by Comb & Razor label owner and Nigerian record collector extraordinaire, Uchenna Ikonne.
Funky Pack features nine cuts of rare Nigerian funk. This includes the sweaty and growling funk tracks Bread Power, Doin' the Good Thing, and Freaky Funkyfied Fix, along with the psychedelic funk dancer Love is Peace and the end-of-the-night lo-fi party jam I've Found Love. Youths of the Universe featured two members of the C.S. Crew and this album includes the psych/garage tracks Troubles of the World, Dig in With Time, and Last Day from the extremely rare Youths of the Universe album Gettin’ Into YOU. Available now!
