Product Description

Willie Bobo & the Bo-Gents-Do What You Want To Do-LP

Willie Bobo & the Bo-Gents --

Do What You Want To Do ...



Incredible work by Willie Bobo -- a slamming record of hard funky instrumentals, one that sounds different than any of his other albums!

The record's a killer all the way through -- a mixture of Latin and deep 70s funk, one of the few perfect fusions of the styles, held up beautifully all the way through the set. We've always liked Willie a lot, but honestly, we don't know how he managed to make a record this funky -- but we're also not arguing, just enjoying the grooves with tremendous delight and surprise. Great all the way through, and includes the break cuts "Do What You Want to Do", "Broasted or Fried", and "Soul Foo Young" -- plus a version of "Dindi", which, for some reason, Willie seemed to record every chance he got! Other titles include "Shut Up & Pay Attention", "Come Together", and "Never You Mind".
