Jean-Bernard Raiteux - Harlem Pop Trotters,LP,1972,France

Outstanding library recording on MPI LP 539, Jean-Bernard Raiteux' Harlem Pop Trotters from 1972. Featuring some hard hitting psych/funk cuts, with strange 'folk' interludes.
Rightly regarded as one of the most desirable and sought after of library recordings. Jean-Bernard Raiteux colaborated also with Jess Franco as soundrack maker in some of his perversed masterpieces!

Yep, for Library fans, this is legendary stuff. The album has been blogged before, but the artwork you're offering is great - therefore, something for everyone!

Oh, THROW down that gauntlet! What do YOU think is THE best?

ok my favs Claude Benaya / JC Pierric are :

1) Godchild (THE beAst)

2) 3rd Abrax (jazz funk) though it is not 100% consistent

3ex) both Harlem Pop Trotters

5) "african" Abrax.
