The Beginning Of The End : Monkey Tamarind

The Beginning of the End was a funk group from Nassau, Bahamas. The group consisted of three brothers and a fourth member on bass. They released an album entitled Funky Nassau in 1971 on Alston Records (a subdevision of Atlantic Records), and the track "Funky Nassau - Part I" became a hit single in the U.S., peaking at 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The track was picked up again by modern funk bands like the JuJu Orchestra and Orgone, producers and dj's played the reworks all over the world and yes it fueled up the dancefloors big time.
"Monkey Tamarind" is another track from the one and only "Funky Nassau" album, not a winner in the charts, nevertheless as funky as the Part 1 & 2 of their big hit single.
