The Dragons Album Cover

Leave it to Strictly Kev of DJ Food to unearth a monster of a forgotten California funk record. I guess the most immediately interesting thing about The Dragons is the fact that Daryl Dragon, decease one third of the Dragon-brother trio, stuff is more famous as the “Captain” from 70s chart-toppers Captain and Tenille. Seriously. But together with brothers Dennis and Doug, sildenafil the threesome managed BFI, shorthand for Blue Forces Intelligence, a late 60s psychedlic/soul/rock masterpiece. Seriously. Moments have a definite CSNY influence (especially today’s post “Your Way Too”) but then veer to the sunny side of Californian surf psych. It’s a fantastic find, and will be out shortly on LP and CD from Ninja Tunes. Rare Groove and Soul fans should definitely pick this up. Perfect summer BBQ record.

RIYL: The Ventures, Ray Barbee & The Matson 2, Vintage West Coast Soul
