Though the career of 70s band Beginning Of The End ended up being relatively short (they disbanded after their second album), things seemed rosy on the release of their 1971 debut LP Funky Nassau. The eponymous track was a huge hit, selling over a million copies and topping the Billboard R ‘n’ B chart. That song’s ebullient mix of American funk sounds, hi-life guitar and the polyrhythmic grooves of their native Bahamas are carried on through the full-length. Not a million miles away from The Funkees. The CD edition contains both this record and their self-titled follow-up.
