Raphael ‘Ray’ Munnings is famously known as the band leader and singer of the mighty Bahamian Funk legends The Beginning Of The End, he is also a formidable solo artist in his own right with a clutch of sought after, rare 7″ singles throughout the early to late 70’s as well as numerous appearances with his band. ‘Opportunity Knockin’ from 1972 is an early one from Ray, released on TK Disco’s Alston imprint, it’s often been a rare 45 and doesn’t show up very often. ‘Opportunity Knockin’ is channelling the usual sun-soaked vibes of his later material this single is a sweet one for summertime, breezy horn infused funk with tough drums and that Caribbean vibe. The b-side is also a winner, ‘Sleep On, Dream On’ is an uptempo slice of wah wah driven Soul with a serious groove and a peace-loving, ecologist theme running through Ray’s vocals. Sublime stuff, for real fans of Funk and Soul rarities! Nab this rare 45 of Caribbean Soul, re-issued here in it’s original 45 rpm format with the original Alston label artwork. It’s been re-mastered, re-pressed and made available again with the permission of TK Disco / Alston Records, Miami Florida, USA.
