Who knew Belgium was so funky? Funky Chicken proves the nation known for waffles and beer also has a surprising amount of hidden funk in the trunk. This kind of music was pretty rare for Belgium in the 70's, but small groups of gifted musicians and composers still managed to create their own unique takes of afro-funk, latin, and soul. In the time of hit parades and variety orchestras, these kinds of songs were few and far between, but thankfully Sbdan has done all the hard digging for you and put Belgium's funkiest nuggets all in one place. Check the killer sound from Chakachas, Open Sky Unit, Plus, Chicken Curry & His Pop Percussion Orchestra, Placebo, Les Helions, and more. Top shelf stuff spread over two LPs with detailed liner notes in the gatefold. Recommended.
