You couldn't make this up if you tried! This is the latest brilliant compilation from the fantastic Numero label who specialise in reissuing ultra-rare and unknown soul and funk from the US and beyond. Where previous compilations have charted the spread of funk and soul in such unlikely hotspots as Belize and the Bahamas, this compilation reveals the secret funky history of - wait for it - Israel! Who knew that there were loads of really good Israeli funk and soul records? Yet here they are, presented for the edification of one and all! The story behind these surprising recordings is that between 1975-1981 a group of black American afro-centric Garveyites, whose hybrid religious ideas overlapped with elements of Judaism, travelled to the Promised Land of Israel. These Black Hebrew settlers included musicians who created a heavenly mix of funky, spiritual soul and jazz with an undercurrent of gospel psychedelia. Featuring the Soul Messengers, the Spirit Of Israel, Sons Of The Kingdom, and the Tonistics, Soul Messages From Dimona is the only living document of a thriving community at both the center and fringe of the world. Deluxe package comes stuffed with rare photographs, sleeve scans, and expansive liner notes about the African Hebrews' journey from the sounds of slavery to the intonations of liberty! Highly recommended!
