G-Money Picks: The Police - Reggatta De Blanc and Zenyatta Mondatta

It's Sunday once again and time for another installment of G-Money Picks! Whenever I ask G-Money (@777GMoney) for a music recommendation, he never steers me wrong.

We have two albums by The Police... Reggatta De Blanc and Zenyatta Mondatta. Both loaded with classic tunes, but it's the lesser known tracks that blew me away.

"The Police's first album was punky but starting with this second album, Regatta de Blanc they were all about the reggae grooves," explained G-Money.

Also, here's an review by David Fricke (circa 1980): Review: Zenyatta Mondatta.


If you dig this series, then check out more picks by G-Money... Bill Frisell's East West, James Brown's Funky People, Allman Brothers - Brothers and Sisters, Little Feat (1976 Winterland), Slave and Ohio Funk Scene, and Grateful Dead - Egypt 1978.
