Thousand Finger Man / Dancin' And Prancin'


Cuban percussionist Candido Camero, dubbed the Thousand Finger Man, because of his rhythmic prowess, was already 58 years old when this was recorded in 1979. A peculiar and haunting song, featuring Woody Cunningham on drums (who later fronted Kleeer), almost veered into MOR territory with its Young Generation-style backing vocals, but the tough rhythm and drifting keyboard arrangements preserved its modesty.

Widely available on the album Dancin’ & Prancin’, it was only ever issued on a Canadian Salsoul 12-inch. “I’ve only ever seen two copies,” says Nick The Record. “I know one guy who was a member of a record pool back then and he never got it the week it came out and it was already impossible to find.”
