Cymande Music

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 16 March 1973

FACTUALLY, CYMANDE is one of the hottest acts in the States right now with a Top 10 single in 'The Message' and an album tucked inside the Top 20, ready to climb further over the next few weeks. What few B&S readers will know is that not one member of the eight-piece band has been inside America — in fact, the nearest any of them has ever been is in the transit lounge of New York airport on the wav from their West Indian birthplaces to London.

Total word count of piece: 975
