THE EMPERORS - KARATE BOOGALOO
I present today one of the most ODD dance records of the late '60's (and there were some VERY odd dance records during this period!).
I am not one to like odd/ kitschy records just for their weird factor; there has to be SOMETHING worthy of my attention in the grooves and this record has plenty to get excited about (other than the mental image I have of folks doing the boogaloo and incorporating karate moves!), from the weird tacked on tacky crowd noise to the (Emperors staple) funky bongos.
A sure hit for your next shindig.
