5.0 out of 5 stars A lesser known must have classic. 22 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you like hip hop, rap, soul, jazz, ragga or reggae you must buy this cd. Hugely influential and multiply sampled Cymande produced some outstanding tunes. It contains some infectious jazzy-reggae-soul songs that you'll recognise and love. Don't buy anything new 'til you have this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous funk 2 April 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an absolutely essential purchase for lovers of funky music! Every single track is a masterpiece. This amazing collection contains 3 complete Cymande albums and best every other compilation of their work. Sound quality is A+++ as is the price. You will not regret buying it!
Whilst every track is excellent, the standouts remain "Bra", "The Message" and "Dove". I first heard "Bra" and "The Message" in Spike Lee's superb film "25th Hour" where they were used to brilliant effect, especially "Bra", during the nightclub sequence. I can't believe I had not heard these tracks until I saw that film. Cymande have been woefully neglected all this time - Mojo should do a feature on them and music lovers ought to be forced to buy this fantastic collection. Perfect for parties.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the Real Deal! 4 Jun 2003
By Doktor Futtocks VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Here it is - everything you'll ever need, Cymande-wise. All three albums, plus unreleased tracks. And what a great band this self-taught 8-piece band were. They gently mush together funk, dub, jazz and the kitchen sink to produce a warm, smooth, easy groove.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best CD I own and have ever heard. 8 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the only album I could award 5 stars for. It is perfect.
Anyone with a pulse and at least 1 ear will enjoy it. Forget musical genres, forget 'afro funk', 'jazz-funk', 'nya-rock', this album is simply the best music I will ever hear. I heard Cymande's tracks for the first time in 1990 and nothing before or since am I able to compare them with.
The instrumentation and musician ship are straight out of the top drawer and the songwriting is actually beyond that - in a differnet league to anything else I've ever heard. 'The Message' makes me smile and and it makes me cry.
The message is the best CD I own and have ever heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars 70's Old School Funk - Fabulous! 26 Mar 2007
By S. Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My husband Loved it! It was a gift for his 40th birthday. We are from the old school and it's refreshing to know you can still find this stuff on Amazon so you can hear the original in all its glory! It's amazing how most of the songs have been sampled by today's artists a million times over and no one knows the history of who made them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential World Funk 24 Jan 2006
By DW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's strange the way I find great music. I first heard Cymande watching the Spike Lee movie 25th Hour on cable. I can't remember the plot but I do remember hearing just a piece of Cymande's song Bra being played in a club scene. From that bit alone I was hooked.

Cymande is a unique mixture of funk, reggae, African pop and American soul. At times they sound like Santana at other times it's Curtis Mayfield. But the combination of influences and the musicians' skill makes them unique. Bassist Steve Scipio deserves much credit for his targeted playing but an awesome horn section doesn't hurt either.

Since this collection has all three albums Cymande made, it is essential.

Yep......I bought this one too!, Sound is just as good as The Renegades Of Funk cd. Once again.....if you can find it...buy it. It will be expensive but an investment well worth it. Peace out.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet 28 April 2005
By D. Gubin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Why doesn't anyone make music like this anymore? Sampled by almost everyone but never matched. The funky jazzy instrumental "Dove" will make you wish for more. And it only gets better. I highly recommend it to any serious music lovers and those looking for the authentic 70's grooves.
