The incredible second album from the legendary Cymande.

Cymande (pronounced Sah-mahn-day) are a legendary funk group formed in 1971 in London by musicians from Guyana, Jamaica and Saint Vincent. Their name was derived from a calypso word for Dove, symbolizing peace and love. The band were signed by producer John Schroeder to his Alaska label in the UK (and Janus in North America). Cymande went on to release three albums in the early-to-mid 1970s. Cherry Red Records are proud to reissue all three original Cymande albums. Their second LP, Second Time Round (1973), further developed their unique musical stew of funk, soul, Afro rhythms and Caribbean stylings, perhaps epitomised on the popular track ‘Fug’.
