Sliding into your weekend with a record like this is a guaranteed mood lifter. We are talking about another Mr. Bongo sure shot, and this time it’s a dubby cover of the Gamble and Huff produced O’Jay’s track “For The Love Of Money”, that is the best version of the song we have ever encountered. Seriously, this thing hits hard. The side is a favorite of Danny Krivit aka Mr. K as well as Harvey, and has rocked shocked dance floors across the world. Sampled by Glenn Underground as well as the master himself J Dilla, Mr. Bongo presents this official reissue from the original DAT masters, remastered and with original artwork as well. If there is one record you grab before the end of the year, this is the record to get. It just works on so many levels, and if you can’t get your hands on the original, we are not shy about dropping this proper reissue from one of the best to do it in the game. If you are kinda new to Mr. Bongo, then we suggest you get deep into their catalog. Whether it’s Latin, Brazil, Disco, African, man should we go on? They don’t put out bad records, and have been an integral part of vinyl record and DJ culture as not just your plain old record label, but preservationists and historians of a lot of this music that would otherwise get lost in obscurity. They are bringing the past back for new generations to discover and share. Ya dig? That’s a whole lot more than these fly by night outfits that are gone before you can even put the needle down on the record. Check out the track below and order after the stream.
