VA - Down Under Groove! Soul Funk & Disco From Australia 1970-1981




Here is two mixtapes I made with groovy sounds from Australia (there are one tune from New Zeeland and one from Tazmania too) 1970-1981, focus may be from the mid to late seventies period. So, this was not a try to do fair overview or something like that, just some groovy mixtapes. You get well orchestrated disco, folky gospel groove, library music, deep soul, some odd funky covers, latin, jazz-funk and MUCH more. Enjoy!
