Cymande are my favorite band of all time. There’s a very good chance their song Bra has crossed your path without you realizing that it was made by a relatively unknown group of musicians from Guyana, Jamaica, and Saint Vincent living in London in the early 1970s. There’s something unmistakably perfect about their subtle blend of funk, jazz, calypso, reggae, traditional African music, and progressive rock that’s found on each of their amazing 3 albums, none of which stray too far from my turntable. Every time I hit play, I find a new favorite. This time it’s “Willy’s Headache” from 1973’s Second Time Round album.
