8. The Jungle Brothers – “Done By The Forces Of Nature”

ETERNAL – charted at #41 on 28th January 1990

Another album I’m afraid to say I’ve never heard before,

I’ve had a look around the internet at different reviews and profiles and the common thought seems to be that this is a great album BUT it’s doing too much and they missed the bus in place of De La Soul.

My feeling is that it’s a bit unfair. It’s a brilliant and uplifting collection of songs with a focus on the band’s African roots.

Rolling Stone calls it one of the 50 Coolest Records of All Time and although it certainly wasn’t the commercial success of “3 Feet High And Rising” it deserves it’s place on that list rather than being considered an also ran.

90 – I’ve listened to and from work nearly 20 times now and every time is a joy.
