Editorial Reviews

Chakachas was a sextet of Belgian studio musicians, all middle-aged and married, who got together, recorded some sides and then went their separate ways. First time on CD for this tripped-out Latin classic from the 70s - a huge global hit for the Belgian group Chakachas, and used in countless soundtracks and hip hop samples over the years. Jungle Fever is probably best remembered for its title hit - a mad bit of funk with pounding drums, heavy breaks, and some of the sexiest mutterings ever set to wax. But the rest of the album is equally great too - and offers a slightly different take on Latin music than you might get from a US group at the time. Rhythms are bold, horn parts are odd, and the vocals sometimes come across more like an instrument than a singer - snapped in the groove with a real sense of tightness that goes way beyond language. Euro funk maestro Nico Gomez penned a few tunes for the set - and the album's an instant party from the get-go!

I used to have this record on vinyl back in the seventies. I thought it was fun then, but now I find even better! I just love this kind of latin pop music. The second track "Un Rayo Del Sol" is really a pure classic, and the whole CD is packed with well-played latin music. I didn't know that the musicians were mostly Dutch and Belgian until I got the CD which offers more information on the band than did the cover of my vinyl copy.
Listening to the steamy hot "Jungle Fever" you would never suspect them to be European! If you're a fiend for rhythmic well-played dance music this one ought to be a choice for you!

In the weird and often wacky realm of the One-Hit Wonder, there have been many oddities, but two stand out for having their subject matter make no bones about the fact they are dealing with something ... well ... erotic. The first came in late 1969 when British-born actress Jane Birkin and French singer Lucien “Serge” Gainsbourg heavy-breathed their way through - in French - Je T’aime ... Moi Non Plus. When it came out on Fontana 1665 and wound up being banned from air play by many radio station, and also excluded from juke boxes, it stalled at # 58 on the Billboard Pop Hot 100. But it was a # 1 in the U.K.!

The second, Jungle Fever, emerged in January 1972 courtesy of this group of Belgian studio musicians led by Gaston Boogaerts, and including saxophonist Vic Ingeveldt, pianist Christian Marc, guitarist/backing vocalist Henri Breyre, maracas player/vocalist Kari Kenton, trumpeter Charlie Lots, and bass guitarist Bill Raymond. The moaning and heavy-breathing by the female vocalist, not to mention the male grunts, left no doubt as to what was transpiring, but what set this apart from Je T’Aime ... Moi Non Plus was the infectious dance-inducing Latin beat.

Released in North American on Polydor 15030, it rose to # 8 Hot 100 and # 11 R&B b/w Cha Ka Cha. A popular vinyl album (Polydor PD-5504) arranged by Will Albimoor, and including a great cover of The Viscounts’ Harlem Nocturne, soon followed, and in 2007 Dusty Groove re-formatted the contents in this CD, which has excellent sound reproduction and interesting liner notes written by Rob Sevier.

We bought this CD because of the track on the boogie nights soundtrack. However the rest of the CD is not the same type of music. Still good just not what we expected.
