This week the Vinyl Vault will feature tracks from the first two albums by the band Cymande. The band originally consisted of nine musicians from the West Indies living in England. Their first album, simply called “Cymande” came out in 1972 on Janus Records. The next, entitled “Second Time Round” was released the following year, also on Janus. The band called their music as Nyah-Rock but was described as a mix of funk, soul, R&B, jazz, rock, reggae, African music and West Indian folk.
