GORDON HENDERSON. THE HIGHEST BIDDER

Caribbean boogie classics from the godfather of Cadence-Lypso.

With his group Exile One, Gordon Henderson was instrumental in creating the Cadence-Lypso style. Fast forward a few years and he was in Air studios in Montserrat, where – along with new group the U-Convention – he recorded the sessions that would make up this release. ‘The Highest Bidder’ is a long-time rare groove classic, a no-messing-about slice of early 80s funky boogie. On the B-side “Hard World” ups the tempo for an over-looked slice of modern soul.
