PRESTON EPPS - AFRO MANIA


While he had a hit a few years earlier with "Bongo Rock", this track finds Preston Epps bringing his bongos into a far, far funkier setting, with some of the coolest drum breaks EVER. I love how even the WHISTLING on this track is funky.

from 1969...

I found your blog about 2 weeks ago and boy have you inspired me to get my act together and get organized. We have so much stuff with no place to store it all. You actually inspired me to put our coat closet to better use. I built an entire closet shelf system last weekend and installed it and now have 4 new shelves 30 inches wide to store things that were previously homeless.
