Billy Cobham – El Barrio

Digital Crate Digging Continues per some Flashback Friday business..

My mind races back to the future; I have flashbacks plus I visualize the sequence..

Some know what the deal is / know what the real is!! they peeped this!! they checked the scenario..

They see how it’s going down from settlements in Jerusalem, inner city streets / ghettos / to the barrio..

What it do? reflecting while listening to  Billy Cobham with  El Barrio; listening to the funky drummer..

What it do? check out the all star players and the track / check the scenario!! check the messages in the drum bro!!
