Their number 15 pop smash Funky Nassau Part 1 & 2 is the cream of this hands-on production by the Bahamas natives. The nine cuts fuses island rhythms and American jazz/funk into a doable, choppy mixture featuring guitars, bass, drums, and scratch vocals. Misclassified as a disco band, the Beginning of the End served up breezy Phil Upchurch-esque sounds, with Come Down and Surrey Ride being prime examples (All Music). It was not until1974 that the band finally recorded another album entitled Beginning of The End which never really took off as Funky Nassau had. Despite being managed by Don Taylor (manager for Bob Marley and T-Connection), the group never really re-captured the missed opportunities of the early 70’s.

We loved funk but wanted to include elements of junkanoo, the indigenous music of The Bahamas. An album was written within a week and recorded at Criteria Studios in Miami. We brought in more Bahamian themes, like ‘Monkey Tamarind’, a wild fruit that grows there.

This is a great pressing and I happen to have a spare copy too!

The UK Atlantic press 12" has the 7" pt 1 and pt 2 on one side and (I think,as I dont have LP to hand) the LP mix on other. The UK W/Lbl promo is a mix with pts 1 and 2 joined together (its well done!)-the same mix being on both sides.... BUT the CUT on this pressing is totally different .The atlantic 12" has 'PEDRO' in the deadwax and the W/Lbl has 'MT'. 'MT' being someone at Damont Audio Ltd in UK-I've no idea who 'PEDRO' is. After playing the two copies together to check sound, it seems the W/Lbl is cut much clearer and louder than the Atlantic copy. Whilst I'm sure the Atlantic 12" will be cut louder (though not necessarily better) than the LP cut, the SAM-206 W/Lbl sounds both louder and better in both highs and lows with quite a noticable difference. Nice one 'MT' -you got that break poppin' !!Also- this came out along with Blue Magic "side show" (SAM204) and "ring circus" (SAM205)-does anyone know what others were in this series and if they were all remastered like Funky Nassau ?

A feel of a deep Soul-Funk aura, some caribbean-horn flavors, rhythmic guitars, and of course the break drums make "Funky Nassau" from the Nassau brothers project entitled The Beginning Of The End one of the major classics of Funk-Soul genre and a standard for the Breakbeat era. The opening lyrics "Nassau's gone Funky... Nassau's gone Soul!" works like a trademark for the era it represents. "We've gotta jugg'on beat now! We gonna call our very own! Nassau Rock... and Nassau Roll... Nassau got... a whole lot of Soul!" brings lot of rhythmic elements embraced by a deep feeling. The most sampled parts are indicated on the solo parts: "Listen to the drummer... playin' this beat!" is followed by Frank 'Bud' Munnings' hot drum solo (which is back on the openning of "Funky Nassau Part 2"); "Listen to the bass man... go get the same groovery!" announces Fred Henfield's bass solo (whose quote was sampled years later by Steinski & The Mass Media on "Let's Play It Cool", 1988); "Listen to the guitar, give that Soul some too!" adds Liroy 'Roy' Munnings' guitars on it. The well-known passage "New York, you know? Has got a whole lot of Soul!" is an evidence of the Big Apple's Music influence on the rest of the World since the sixties & seventies for all the related genres. Since then, several Breakbeat style bands and artists, from Hip Hop to Jungle, Drum n' Bass, some Electro among other Breakbeat made use of instrumental solos from American Funk-Soul bands, many of them from New York. Drum n' Bass producer Paradox used fragments of "Funky Nassau" on his "Kool Is Back"; also did DJ Mink on the WARP classic "Hey, Hey - Can You Relate?" for all the drum solo; Breakbeat act Renegade Soundwave on "Ozone Breakdown" too, just like did Cuba on the downtempo piece "White Shadow". "Nassau's got sunshine... and this you all know! But we've gone Funky... And we've got some Soul too! Funky Nassau!" is just one more evidence of the hottest Soul-Funk combination that is at the core of "Funky Nassau". The timeless classic was included on countless compilation since them, from Kenny Dope's 'Choice: A Colection Of Classics' to Liam Howlett's 'The Dirtchamber Sessions Volume One', the 'Funk 45's' selection, just to mention some.
