Growing up in Jamaica, young Rowland Abrahams loved dancing to James Brown so much that he earned himself the nickname Papas' Got. He later moved to Paris and in 1979 he, more or less single-handedly, recorded the 'I Wanna Love' LP for the RGR label. Admittedly not an album with a heavy yield, the only pearl was the title track which Rocafort Records released as a 12-inch with an exclusive Al Kent edit on the B-side. No rocket science involved here, just pure killer Afro-disco-funk groove from start to finish. Urgent funky guitar riffs, thumping drums and a strong hint of late '70s Euro-disco fueled by the slightly unintelligible lyrics delivered with a Frenchie patois twist.
