Just like I Gres and I Marc 4, the Barigozzi Group were rediscovered during the late 90's thanks to the increased interest in rare groove and library music. This compilation is packed full of jazzy, library orientated delights that are sourced from three different Barigozzi releases. As some of the track titles might suggest there is an exotica and samba theme running through "Message From The Jungle", "African Popcorn", "Flute Safari" and "Brasilian Butterfly". The majority of the music is mid tempo and straightforward with the use of flute, horns and organ providing the spark that brings many of the songs to life. My personal favourites are "Theme For Aretha", "Lilac Arms" and the opener "Red Face". It's a collection I have long cherished and I hope you enjoy it too. I will be posting one of the original Barigozzi Group albums at Funky Frolic in the future so stay tuned!

Mr. Craig said...

No, I don't have "Camille 20000" but I have heard very good things about it. I'm sure I could find a rip to post here. Thanks for your message.
