LP 244: Mandingo – Mandingo III (EMI, 1974)

23 Jun

Side 1
A Story Of Survival
01 Invocation To The Gods
02 War Dance
03 (a) Watching and Waiting (b) Battle
04 Celebration
05 Triumphal March

Side 2
06 Drums In The Night
07 Bodysnatcher
08 The Headhunter
09 Witchdoctor
10 Maneater
11 Mumbo-Jumbo

The library hit men are out in force again with Mandingo’s third release.

The funk is as savage as ever with Mike Vickers’ side long Story of Survival a particularly potent brew. Triumphal March is the key track – it starts with a military vibe before the booming brass kicks in.

The remaining tracks are carved up and dissected by Roger Webb, Nick Ingman and Alyn Ainsworth. Maneater is the pick of the bunch, a shuddering piece of tasty hard-edged exotica.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
