La Scoumoune Francois de Roubaix CAM LAG 443 050, 1972
La Scoumoune album cover

This album is destined for the oddball pile. Despite a series of excellent photos of de Roubaix at work in his home studio playing double bass and drums, there are practically no beats on this record. It's almost all instrumental, and all backed by a strange electronic series of noises. There's some great jazz work, good Hammond, and an absolutely superb ripe-for-sampling bassline on the flip side, but unfortunately this album can't be recommended as a funk soundtrack.

Overall Rating: 2
