Like the deadly scorpion of the album's cover, The Budos Band's second release, II, creeps stealthily over the hot desert sand. With it's tail arched high in readiness, it maneuvers patiently under the scorching desert sun and chooses it's prey. It strikes without warning and with out remorse. The venom of it's sting ever-intoxicating. With its twenty-two legs, three horns, and hallucinogenic venom, The Budos Band (the unheralded emperors of Instrumental Staten Island Afro-Soul) continue to rule the mirage of desert soul dreams. While their debut album was itself heralded as a groundbreaking exploration of funk, afro-beat and soul music, few could predict that their second effort would not only match, but surpass the realm of mind-expansion embodied on their first sessions. Featuring "His Girl" the gnarly, hair raising rendition of the Temptations' "My Girl."
