She Wants to Mambo / Watts
The Chanters & Brother Woodman
Availability: In stock
Lifted from the second volume of Jukebox Mambo, our album of Latin-tinged R&B, the Chanters 'She Wants To Mambo' absolutely epitomizes the sound, with the exotic rumba back-beat and stop-start rhythm - complete with obligatory 'unghh' vocal interjections - utilized to ramp up the sex factor.
Chanters lead siren Ethel Brown (who also gave us 'Hot Mama' from the Jukebox Jam Vol 2 comp) is in particularly flirtatious mood as she coos and oohs back and forth with her backing singers.
On the flip, another great side from the Chanters, and another rumba-laced track, this time cut for Chuck Higgins' Combo label and featuring a male lead, regaling us with a proud tribute to the groups hometown, the south central Los Angeles district of Watts.
