Italian Funk 45s pt.2

Trying to cash in on the international success of Manu Dibango's single "Soul Makossa" and the bad distribution of the original version in Italy, Durium records' producer Felice Piccarreda (Wess, The Motowns, I Nuovi Angeli) in early 1973 assembled a studio band to cover the track. The result is one of the best versions of this afro-funk classic, faster than the original and hard on the drums, backed with an "original" called "Pitch Black" that keeps the groove going with a similar bass riff and more fake African gibberish.
