Mandrill - Mandrill (1971)
Debut album by Brooklyn's psych-funk spacers Mandrill is a force to be reconmed with! Mandrill were formed by the Wilson brothers (Carlos, Ric and Lou) who handled the flutes, guitars, percussion, sax and vocals along with Claude Cave (organ), Bundie Cenac (bass) and Omar Mesa (lead guitar).
Although i love side one, it is side two that totally does it for me on this album.........psychy flute whisps, psychy organ thumps, wild drumming, vocal harmonies, spacey guitar and crazy music! The side long song is called "Peace and Love" and resonates with the power of the band WAR with the funk of FUNKADELIC.
