Heavy afro boogie 12" by Cameroonian-born singer Dick Dickson. 2nd release of Beaumonde.. Keep an eye on this label!
He was clearly aiming for the US funk sound in fashion at the time when he recorded In The Pocket in 1986.The session took place in Togo and had band members come from Congo, Cameroon and the French West Indies making the music of In The Pocket an outstanding rendezvous between electrified-boogie and African influenced groove. With the help of Régine Féline’s sensual voice, melodic synth pads and distinctive slap bass, In The Pocket grabs you instantly. Totally overlooked upon its release, BeauMonde felt that Dick Dickson’s unique offering deserved a second chance.
