Composite Truth


Composite Truth (1973) was Mandrill's third release
This lp marked Neftali's first Mandrill Lp. Composite Truth went on to be Mandrill's Biggest seller with hits like: Fencewalk, Hang Loose, Polk Street. This string of hits put Mandrill in the Headlining spotlight, touring with everyone from Deep Purple and Savoy Brown to James Brown and the Jackson 5 to Duke Ellington and the Symphony of the New World Orchestra.
Footnote: Mandrill auditioned  many other drummers and it came down to Dennis Davis and Neftali. Neftali got the gig with Mandrill and Dennis got the David Bowie gig.

Public Enemy sampled Fencewalk also on there "In Fear Of A Black Planet" lp.
