New Joseph KabaseleLe Grand Kalle – His Life His Music (2CDs & book) ... CD
Sterns, 1950s/1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An amazing tribute to the legendary Joseph Kabasele – easily one of the most influential forces in music from the Congo – and the bandleader who first introduced Manu Dibango and Tabu Ley Rocherau to the world! The package is beautiful – a heavy book-style cover with over 100 pages of notes and full color images – the history of Kabasele in both English and French, which is also the history of African music of the time, too – especially during the 50s and 60s period covered by the music on the set's 2CDs. Sterns always does a great job with their collections, but this one really takes it to the next level – a wonderful mix of history and music, with a whopping 38 tracks that include "African Jazz", "Table Ronde", "Tembe Nye", "Baila", "Mindule Mipanzana", "Jolie Nana", "Nzambe E Mungu", "Biwela Biwela", "BB 69", and "Mokili Zala Ata Juste".

New VariousNigeria Rock Special – Psychedelic Afro Rock & Fuzz Funk In 1970s Nigeria ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Forget the "rock" in the title, and just focus on the "funk" – because this set of tracks is a massively heavy batch of Nigerian numbers from the 70s – all with the same solidly soulful feel as more familiar Afro Funk work of the time! There's a definite emphasis on guitars – which are often used in freaky and fuzzy ways, to offer up a more tripped-out take on the music than you might expect – but they never go too far into mainstream rock territory, certainly not in an Anglo sort of way. Most of the rhythms are still very much in an Afro Funk mode – but again a bit more tripped-out than usual – sometimes with a nice sense of space and laidback timing, which is often augmented by production techniques that pull out some of the cooler aspects of the music. There's a fair bit of keyboards too, often used in ways that are similar to the guitars – and in a way, the vibe here is often in the mode of British cross-cultural groups of the post-colonial years – like Cymande or Demon Fuzz, both of whom would sound right at home here. As usual with Soundway, the whole package is put together with a great deal of love and care – and full notes on all the wonderful music within! 15 tracks in all – including "Finger Toe" by Tabukah X, "Odenigbo" by The Wings, "Adieu" by Ofege, "In The Jungle (inst)" by The Hygrades, "Freaking Out" by Question Mark, "Omoboa D'Eru Ri" by Tunji Oyelana, "Another Man's Thing" by Joe King Kologbo & His Black Sound, "Acid Rock" by The Funkees, "Kenimania" by Mono Mono, "Ku Mi Da Hankan" by The Elcados, and "Eniaro" by Ofo The Black Company.
