|1.||Les Ambassadeurs Du Motel De Bamako - "Get Up James" (4:04)|
Destination Mali: it's the early 70s, funk bands are popping in all directions and Rail Band and Les Ambassadeurs du Motel de Bamako are two key players. The former lay down a springy jam that opens with mischievous horns and won't quit until the final tinny guitar twangs. The latter pay homage to the big man JB with a heavy organ-slapped groove, big bold band orders and a dramatic crescendo. Powerful.
