Papas’ Got – I Wanna Love (12″)
Papas’ Got – I Wanna Love
Growing up in Jamaica, young Rowland Abrahams loved dancing to James Brown so much that he earnt himself the nickname ‘Papas’ Got’. He later moved to Paris and in 1979 more or less single-handedly recorded the ‘I Wanna Love’ LP on the RGR label. Admittedly not an album with a heavy yield, the only pearl being the title track which Rocafort Records are releasing as a 12″ with an exclusive Al Kent edit on the B side.
No rocket science involved here, just pure killer afro-disco-funk groove from start to finish.Urgent funky guitar riffs, thumping drums and a strong hint of late 70s euro-disco fueled by the slightly unintelligible lyrics delivered with a Frenchie patois twist.
