Welcome to the Heatwave

As we ring out the eleventh year of the second millennium I'd like to set the stage for 2012! There will be a lot of Tropical Heatwave news in the coming months...I can't wait to share more Caribbean sounds with y'all!
Here's a good one to start with ~ This obscure 45 on Pauls Records from 1975 is by Sambo with a stripped down cover of Barabas's proto-disco classic "Woman" ~ with a distinctive tropical sound that is chock full of heavy percussion and spaced out synths!
Enjoy... DJ McBoing Boing


  1. Sambo is Trini. also did a tune with Lynn Taitt (though his name is spelled "tatte" on the label) titled "Depend on Yourself" that is a monster island funk tune

  2. Paul's is Paul Davidson methinks as well
