Amartey HedzolehKukurantumi ... LP
Chop Time (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Excellent solo work from Amartey Hedzoleh – a key member of the important Afro Funk combos Psychedelic Aliens and Hedzoleh Sounds – heard here in a set of previously-unreleased tracks from the early 80s! The music is quite rootsy all the way through – with Hedzoleh on vocals and a host of different instruments that include guitar, kalimba, gonje, and jiri – spun out over percussion that's sewn together in tightly rhythmic grooves by some great bass and guitar – often moving at a speed that's pretty intense! The sound is very unique – earthy and almost ethnographic, but with all the rhythmic appeal of studio grooves from the time – and titles include "Pe Pe", "Abonsa Iye Woye", "Abena At Rest House", "Hie Hie Woyaa", "Serious", and "Tontro". LP, Vinyl record album

New Orlando JuliusDisco Hi Life (plus bonus track) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the clubbiest African records of the 70s – and a set that would be equally at home on a New York dancefloor as it would back in Lagos! Orlando Julius was always a funky cat – an artist with one ear keenly tuned to the American funk and soul underground, and ready to fuse those grooves with a more Nigerian style overall. And here, Julius moves from heavy funk to warmer uptempo grooves – virtually creating the sound of African disco in the process! All instrumentation is super-sharp, and played by a great live group – and the long tracks really let all the musicians open up and get in some solos – but at a speed that's even more frenetic than on a record by Fela. Titles include "Disco Hi-Life", "Awade", "Children Of The World", and "Love Peace & Happiness". CD features a bonus track – "Disco Hi-Life (2009 edit)". CD
