Frankie Zhivago- The Age of Flying High (1976 *Superfly 2010)

Honey smooth soul from Nassau with a chunk of influence from the Carribean (as the cover promises, reggay). You can hear a little Junakoo percussion too, but mostly just sweet funk guitar & creamy vocal harmonies. Frankie has a wonderful soft falsetto, & when he's being tough, he seems to unearth a secret connection between Rodd Keith & Sammy Davis Jr...(Weirdo Records)

By request (sort of): Frankie Zhivago's debut LP. A charming, oddball Bahamian reggae-soul outing backed by the great Boris Gardner Happening. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly. Sourced from the 2010 Superfly Records reissue.
