wind on horseback

I've been digging a lot just lately, in dusty crates and boxes in dirty concrete basements and I've had some extra ordinary luck finding pockets of gold, in between mountains of Phil Collins and Dan Hill albums. You will certainly benefit too from these excursions to forgotten spaces, as this insatiable blog demands more lost, found, new and old grooves of distinction.

I've recently found copies of two Mandrill album's, both are in relatively good nick, both are delicious Afro jungle Soul Funk sides, but for tonight I really wanted you to check out the brilliant 'Wind On Horseback' from their 1975 album 'Solid' which came out on United Artists. It's epic, rich groove, thick with instrumentation, spirals upward into an endless peak of soul haunting. Solid!!
