Funky Nassau - The Compass Point Story 1980-1986. Obsession (Nassau Mix). The Orchard Music (от лица компании "TRAD VIBE")" и другие авторские общества (1). Композиция. Padlock (Larry Levan Mix).
The most well-known cuts on Funky Nassau: The Compass Point Story 1980-1986 might as well be shorthand for this type of fusion- Tom Tom Club's chirpy, blissed-out Caribbean/new wave/rap pastiche "Genius of Love", Talking Heads' jittery Afrobeat-inflected digital rave-up "Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)", and an extended version. And then there's Bits & Pieces- basically Sly & Robbie working under an alias- - cranking out a playful but heavy cover of Yarbrough & Peoples' 1980 hit "Don't Stop the Music", replicating its fuzzed-out synth-funk faithfully but throwing in a subtle reggae backbeat and, for kicks, a few likeably daft rap lyrics about hairstyles. The Compass Point sound proved that the sound of the Caribbean could cover just about anywhere- and, at the same time, helped create music that couldn't have come from anywhere else.
On a session-to-session basis, in slightly varying combinations, drummer Sly Dunbar, percussionist Uziah "Sticky" Thompson, bassist Robbie Shakespeare, keyboardist Wally Badarou, guitarists Barry Reynolds and Mikey Chung, and engineer Alex Sadkin made up the in-house team at Island founder Chris Blackwell's Compass Point, a studio located just outside Nassau in the Bahamas. As Blackwell recalls in David Katz's excellent liner notes to this set, titled Funky Nassau: The Compass Point Story 1980-1986, "I wanted a new, progressive sounding band.
Play that funky music, white boy. Product Overview. Marvelling over a recording studio is like analysing the floorboards of The Globe, to try and figure out Shakespeare’s genius. Island boss Chris Blackwell’s legendary bolthole in the Bahamas is an obvious exception. Put it down to the location, the climate or the, er, relaxed atmosphere, but artists ranging from Grace Jones to Talking Heads found their muse here, assisted by in-house rhythm section Sly& Robbie. Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese. Freewheeling and mischievous companion piece to the latest Dylan box set. Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, The Raconteurs, Woodstock and more star in the new Uncut.
