- tiger in the night (comp, 1978)



"the music of mandingo" aka "tiger in the night" is a compilation of mandingo tunes pulled from four of his albums. somebody can maybe confirm - i think geoff love only released four lps under the monniker mandingo - "sacrifice" in '73 another in '73, '74 and then in '77. listening to the '73 stuff again i could not believe how progressive it was. jungle funk exotica aside - this is serious disco in the making, and for '73 that's quite something. i also love how everyone in the uk scene wrote tracks for him - roger webb (one of my all-time favourites,) brian fahey, alyn ainsworth etc. quite a supergroup. this compilation contains a great selection of some of mandingo's finest moments, and they are darn impressive. crazy congas, funk, guitar and orchestra. nothing quite like it. the cover of this one says "if you want to discover your roots... live to... dance to... listen to... the music of mandingo the pulsating rhythm of life."

hi Ján,

Thanks for the list of expired links. One or two of them were pulled due to copyright violation but the rest I'll add again asap.

I've just finished a compilation I'm very proud of that just needs a cover and i'll then post.

Stay well,
