Ivan "Boogaloo Jones"- Sweetback



Ivan "Boogaloo Joe" Jones- Sweetback (Luv N Haight) 1975


"Sweetback" MP3

***I just uploaded the mp3 again so if you only have the 3 minute version that was up previously, get the full track that is up now!! This song rocks****


Ask any of my friends and they will tell you I am obsessed with this guy. I picked this up on cd in college when I was really getting into jazz guitar. I love stuff released in the mid to late 70's especially. This album truly changed my life. I liked it so much I went out and bought a guitar and started taking lessons hoping that someday, maybe, I could play as funky Boogaloo Joe. The entire album rips- the first track, "Confusion", has an insanely fast and furious guitar solo that could make any jamband kids' head float away. The last song is a stellar cover of Stevie Wonder's "You Got it Bad, Girl".

The crown jewel, for me at least, is "Sweetback". Literally my favorite song of all time. Nothing beats the guitar solo he drops in the middle. Also, DJ Greyboy just put out a remix.

Enjoy,

-Ben
