SOUL STEEL & SHOW

Another album with Black Dutch Music on the Negram label. THE DUTCH RHYTHM STEEL & SHOW BAND a.k.a. Trinidad Oil Company was formed 1969 in Zaandam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands. Insane stage outfit for the photography and a crazy typeface selection for the cover artwork but this dope packaging is not promising too much … the sound is a weird kind of SOUL and there are some unusual versions to discover. Very first this crazy vocal cover of FUNKY STUFF by Kool & The Gang followed by a pure Steel Drum version of SHAFT (Isaac Hayes). But there is also HEY JOE (Jimi Hendrix), a catchy tune that brings a new soulful perspective to Neil Young’s doing DOWN BY THE RIVER and some other dope covers and mad versions.
