"The second in our series of exploration of the pan-American funk experience, Cult Cargo: Grand Bahama Goombay is a deep overview of funky Nassau's redheaded sister city, Freeport, GBI. From 1969-1976 Frank Penn's GBI studio and label cranked out a dozen LPs and twice as many singles infected with the Miami sounds drifting in over the 100 mile strait. The catalog is a fruity blend of rake and scrape, bush, junkanoo, calypso, reggae, and of course, goombay, with a twist of American soul. The 76-minute, 16 track CD features Jay Mitchell, Frank Penn, the Gospel Chandeliers, Dry Bread, Cyril Ferguson, Sylvia Hall, The Mustangs, Ozzie Hall, and Willpower."
