Mandrill - Mandrill 1970

One of funk's most progressive outfits, Mandrill paid the price for their ambitions in commercial returns -- not that they never earned a reputation or an audience, but their expansive, eclectic vision often worked better when given an album's worth of room to roam, rather than being condensed into hit singles. Mandrill's jam-heavy brand of funk was liberally infused with Latin, Caribbean, and jazz influences, plus blues, psychedelia, African music, and straight-up rock. Their freewheeling approach was a definite influence on the Parliament-Funkadelic collective (an early incarnation of which actually served as their opening act), and their grooves have been sampled by numerous hip-hop acts in modern days.

Release Notes

Two Arista gems from Mandrill -- back to back on a brilliant CD! New Worlds is a bit smoother than some of the group's earlier work, but still plenty darn great -- and in a way, there's a warmer, more soulful vibe going on here that really opens things up! The album kicks off with the incredible modern soul cut "Too Late" -- a killer blend of jazzy soul with some slightly southern touches -- all hung around these warmly crackling vocals you'd never have expected from the group in years past! Other cuts are a bit more funk-directed -- often in that late 70s mainstream mode with plenty of bass at the bottom, almost in a pre-boogie sort of groove. Cuts include the modern soul classic "Too Late" -- plus "Having A Love Attack", "When You Smile", "Mean Streets", "Stay Tonight", and "It's So Easy Lovin' You". Getting In The Mood is surprisingly wonderful later work from Mandrill -- really stretching out in their style, but in a warmly soulful way! By this point in their career, Mandrill had come a long way from the proto-spiritual/Latin/funk sound of earlier days -- but surprisingly, they'd actually matured into a pretty darn sweet harmony soul band, with plenty of spacey elements from the old days, tied into their more modern production style. Sure, pure funk fans might wince at this album -- but it's a great record from a modern soul perspective, with plenty of great soulful numbers. Titles include "When you Shake", "Getting In The Mood", "My Kind Of Girl", "Feeling Good", "Love Made Me Over", and "Coming Home". © 1996-2009, Dusty Groove America, Inc.
