The Blue Rhythm Combo from Barbados produced some of the heaviest funk records to come out of the Caribbean in the early '70s - crossing the local Spouge rhythm with a heavy dose of American styled funk and soul. Their singles on the Merrydisc label have long been sought after by DJs for their unique musical blend and tight-as-a-whip rhythms that stand shoulder to shoulder with some of the best party funk to come out of the United States. This release brings together six of their heaviest tracks from the early to mid-'70s, culled from their releases on the famed Merrydisc label and a later single on WIRL that showcases their later and more soulful sound. This is as close to Caribbean funk as you'll get without catching the plane and going there yourself! Top quality pressing over three 45s, recommended.
