3.0 out of 5 stars Do yourself another favor 4 Aug 2005
By bstill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This title has poor sound quality and was not remastered.

Cymande - Renegades of Funk was nicely remastered and has 2 unreleased bonus tracks not availble here. I recently bought that record. And the hit track Bra absolutely bumps. The rest of the album flows very nicely. Just thought I would pass along the word to Cymande fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Yourself A Favor 12 Mar 2004
By Professor Booty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
i got this cd about ten years ago in london. they were playing it in a record shop. i bought it on the spot. never heard of them before or since, but this cd is great. luckily my copy is on sequel not collectables because a friend bought the collectables (he also was floored) and the mastering sounds like someone put a rug over the speaker. don't hold this against the band though! really great blend of funk, soul and reggae that is hard to pin down...

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunate 12 Sep 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It disappoints me when a rehash/oldies label does not do their homework. This is not a reissue of Cymande's first two LPs. This is a badly put together mismatch of some tracks from all of the cymande records. Many of the tracks on this record do not belong on a retrospective album. Its too bad the original artwork of the first cymande record was used here. This is absolute sacriledge and does not do justice to cymande's great work.
Anyhow the sequencing is uneven and sporadic and the sound quality is not good on this particular reissue. My advice buy the other titles by Cymande.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic 14 July 2009
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
........So, I go to see Spike Lee's 25th Hour when it comes out in 2003. I am enjoying the film, but I, ever on the hunt for good music, hear this 70s latin thing during a club scene in Lee's joint. I read the credits, check the movie guides, and nothing. It is obviously a sample, and not listed, anyplace. Well, it drives a music man like me crazy when he wants something, but can't find it. What WAS that music?

Months and many web postings later, and finally somebody writes "oh, that's Cymande." "A band?" I ask. "Yeah." Which just shows you no matter how long you have been collecting and no matter how much you know about music, something great ALWAYS slips through your fingers.

Obviously, I am pointing and clicking on this right away. I knew I had at least a fraction of a good song on my hands--it turned out that "Bra" was the short sample in the film. (What does bra mean in spanish? I don't think this is a song about underwear.) But I had no idea of how good this band was until I played the album

This is tight, taunt, latin funk--and I empahsize the word funk. By the time Cymande emerged in 1972, Santana was already into long fussion jams. This music is nothing like that. Some of the solos are long, but only when they fit. Cymande sets a tight, funky groove that always has a compelling rhythmic edge, and mine it for all it is worth. There is absolutely no fat on this music. The playing is excellent. A lot of little insertions happen in these ecconomical little grooves, and you hear more each time you play the album.

Fantastic record. Don't be an idiot like I was. Get this on your radar, now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memories of Past life Music 23 Aug 2005
By Emile J. Roberts Jr. - Published on Amazon.com

When I was younger, I bought this album on a whim. Once I had heard it and played it over and over again, I was hooked. As I listen to the current CD, I hear cuts that were not on the original album. They do not disappoint but reaffirms that the original record and cuts for this particular album contain the richer sound of this group.Their better work. It identified them for me as an "outsider band" with something unique to say.

As time past I lost sight of them but not interest. I am refreshed to hear the wale, whine and harmony of CYMANDE once again.
