Peruvian funk/soul outfit, Black Sugar has become one of the most popular bands you’ve never heard. They only released 2 LPs between ’71 and ’72, but word of their inimitable sound has quietly spread and recently their albums have become a holy grail of sorts for collectors the world over. Their current underground popularity can likely be credited to not only their ability to play American funk as well as anyone (and sing in English), but also the uniqueness of their sound. With driving percussion, powerful key boards, and beautiful melodies, Black Sugar artfully mixed Latin jazz with American funk and soul to create one amazing sound.
These LPs were pressed by Lazarus Productions and are currently distributed Secret Stash. They were pressed a few years ago, but are unopened. The jackets may have normal wear from sitting around with records in them. Tracks from this album can be found on our Peruvian Funk compilation.
