1 September 2015, No. 118, Explosions with Juanita Brooks, ‘Garden of Four Trees’

Today and tomorrow we’re doing a couple more Eddie Bo productions that made it onto the list mostly for their highly loopable intros. At No. 118 we’ve got Explosions with Juanita Brooks doing “Garden of Four Trees.” I’ve listened several times in a row, and the lyrics still aren’t coming through, but who cares? Pull it back and listen to those open drums and bongos in the intro again. Mm. Satisfying.
