    Cry For Peace And Love

    [engl] One more classic of the so called Afro Beat scene is this sole album by Nigerians MIXED GRILL from 1979. Heart warming reggae anthems and steaming hot funk eruptions with an ever flowing rhythmical pulse that puts you in a state of trance embrace each other on this album whose original copies nowadays fetch prices of 250,00 and more Dollars. MIXED GRILL are skilled musicians through and through capable to create and perform songs with a steady flow that come as tight as a band might play and still with a maximum of vividness. Great brass arrangements add much to the gentle atmosphere of inner peace generated by band and album. MIXED GRILL are in fact as good as any of the mainstream funk bands from the early to mid 70s and truth is that they even scored a deal with UK based cult label Decca for a wider release of their album. Well, sometimes people should listen with open ears and hearts. When you hear these cats play you could no longer stay in your armchair or wherever you sit down. Your physical body will constantly move and groove while your spirit will dive into an ocean of colors. Every fan of high class black music between reggae, soul and funk will fall in love with this band and definitely be pleased to hear that there is a killer reissue of “Cry for peace and love” out now.
