4 out of 5 stars

QUALITY PRE-FAME DISCO-FUNK FROM KING COCNUT.

Long before he became the safari-suited hipster of the 1982's hit album Tropical Gangsters, August Darnell had been striking lesser know musical gold. Going Places mines this near decade as a producer for New York's Ze Records. From the alt-Boney M silliness of I'm An Indian Too by Don Armando's Second Avenue Rhumba Band to the social commentary f Michine's throbbing disco There But For The Grace Of God Go I, it bursts with unexpected ideas, cheek and an irristible danceflor pulse.
