read an article on a post Bob Stanley on Guardian

"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, tourists and prostitutes – it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

IKE TURNER & THE KINGS OF RHYTHM A BLACK MAN'S SOUL

POMPEII RECORDS 1969                          SD 6003       



credits:

Composed By – A, Miller* (tracks: B4), Ike Turner (tracks: A1 to A3, A6, B3, B5, B6),
Marvin Holmes  (tracks: B1,B2), Oliver Sain (tracks: A4,A5)
    Producer – Ike & Tina Turner



When he was out on tour in 1969 with his regular gig, the Ike & Tina Turner Revue,
Ike Turner found the time to cut the instrumental album A Black Man's Soul. 
Whenever he had some spare time he would drag the band into a local studio
and lay down tracks, resulting in these 12 funky soul jams that sound like
they were lifted from the soundtrack to a blaxploitation film. The band is
tight and laid-back at once, with horns at the forefront most of the time.
Turner came up with some fine grooves like "Thinking Black," 
"Getting Nasty" (with Billy Preston on piano), "Scotty Souling," "Nuttin' Up,"
and the monumental "Funky Mule." However, the record lacks
Turner's usual fire and flair and ultimately istoo polite and slick to be 
very memorable ("Funky Mule" aside


track list:

A1 Thinking Black        
A2 Black Beauty        
A3 Ghetto Funk        
A4 Blacks' Alley        
A5 Black Angel        
A6 Getting Nasty        
B1 Funky Mule        
B2 Philly Dog        
B3 Scotty Souling        
B4 Up Hard        
B5 Nuttin' Up        
B6 Freedom Sound

BUN HUNGA AND HIS COMBO RELAX

DIRESA RECORDS  (Spain) 1973                     DLP 1073 


 notes of the  Martian Shaker blog

 Little known Belgian group from the early '70's who created a fantastic
Latin influenced acid groove instrumental sound with loads of fuzz
guitars, funky arrangementsand exotic atmospherics. 
Easy listening progressive, acid rock funk...

Ce combo belge du début des années 70 est - à ma connaissance -
à l'origine de deux disques sous un autre nom de groupe, 
"Golden Music Orchestra" ;il s'agit de l'album "Trumpet prayer" et du
rare "Music in transit", dont on retrouve ici quelques titres, l'éponyme
"Music in transit", "Diplomatic", "African honeymoon"
et l'extraordinaire "Bangala", une pièce exotica lancinante 
et décalée. Voici donc les GMO réédités par le label espagnol Wah Wah,
sous un nom plus hype,une pochette plus intrigante que l'originelle.



track list:




A1         Happy Starting     3:06    
A2         Privilege For Organ     3:05    
A3         Diplomatic Por Organ     3:05    
A4         Quiet Ballad     2:48    
A5         Play Thing For Suzy     5:32    
B1         Music In Transit     3:00    
B2         Cabal In The Night     3:28    
B3         Travelling On Rhythms     2:55    
B4         Bangala     3:58    
B5         African Honeymoon     2:41
