Party Pack

Ahoy there, whey-faced lovers of lo-fi! Are you hosting a New Year's Eve party and worried that with only your funereal-paced record collection to play your rug will be left uncut? Well, feel free to dip into the 27 Leggies Party Pack:

"Dancin' Mood" - Jay & The Techniques (USA)

"Hippy, Skippy Moon Strut" - The Moon People (USA)

"Gumba Gumba" - Letta Mbula (South Africa)

"Jive Soweto" - Sipho "Hotstix" Mabuse (South Africa)

"Maxaka" - Peta Teanet (South Africa)

"Jolies Filles" - Lapiro De Mbanga (Cameroon)

"Princesa Negra De Angola" - Bebeto (Brazil)

"Rus Pu Tin" - Panadda Chayapark (Thailand)

Yes, that last one is what you think it is. I included it as a tribute to Bobby Farrell of Boney M, the original Daddy Cool and one of the finest mimers in the business, who sadly passed away earlier today. Here he is in action.

Bobby was born in Aruba. Unfortunately, I can never hear the word Aruba without singing "Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya" etc. This is possibly my favourite version of "Kokomo".

And a Happy New Year to you all.
