New Mahmoud AhmedEre Mela Mela (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Buda/L'Arome/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard in your life – an assortment of mid 70s tunes from Mahmoud Ahmed, the second grooviest Ethiopian artist, next to Mulatu! Ahmed's sound is a lot more out there than Mulatu's – less funky and jazz-based, and more in the mode of snakey rhythms, complicated guitar parts, and vocals that have a melancholy quality that's simply amazing. This set features tunes that recently appeared on volume 7 of the Ethiopiques CD series – but which are presented here in the format of the original 1975 LP! Titles include "Ere Mela Mela", "Ohoho Gedama", "Tezeta", "Abbay Mado", "Atawurulegn Lela", and "Endenesh Gedawo". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousVery Best Of Ethiopiques – Cult Hits From The Original Series ... CD
Buda/Metro (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A great dip into the legendary catalog of the Ethiopiques series – and one that attempts to bring together some of the most groove-heavy tracks from the collection! The series has been going for over a decade – and is well-known for bringing amazing other-worldly sounds to a much wider audience – tunes recorded in Ethiopia during the 60s and 70s, rarely with original exposure to the outside world, and often featuring exotic reed passages, spacey keyboards, and some of the weirdest rhythms you'll ever hear! This 2CD set is a great way to dig the Ethiopiques groove without having to randomly buy the few dozen titles in the collection – and it's supported by great notes aimed at newcomers to the music. This package is different than a similarly-titled collection that was out a few years ago – with a total of 27 titles that include "Yegelle Tezeta" and "Asmarina" by Mulatu Astatque, "Gara Ser New Betesh" by Teshome Meteku, "Tezalegn Yetentu" and "Sethed Seketelat" by Tlahoun Gessesse, "Belomi Benna" and "Alem Alem" by Mahmoud Ahmed, "Ene Negn Bay Maensh" by Girma Beyene, "Teredtchewaehu" by Alemayehu Eshete, "Selam Temagwet" by Tekle Tesfa Ezghi, "Qondjo Ledj Nat" by Ayalew Mesfin, "Yemendjar Shega" by Muluquen Mellesse & Dahlak Band, "Tchereqa" by Menelik Westnatchew, and "Tezeta" by Tesfa Maryam Kidane.

New VariousEthiopiques Volume 28 – Ali Birra – Great Oromo Music ... CD
Buda (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Ethiopiques series returns to that early 70s stretch that made its earliest releases so great – and serves up some classic work from singer Ali Birra – a really great discovery from this golden age of music! Birra works here in a style that's referred to as oromo music – and which is a bit different than some other Ethiopian work of the time, yet oddly familiar too! The grooves have a touch of Mulatu's exoticism, and the vocals have the same hypnotic feel we love in Mahmoud Ahmed – spun out with a soulfulness that's instantly compelling, even if you can't understand the language – and which communicates volumes just through its tone and timing. Most tracks here are from the years 1973 and 1975, but the set also features a few late 60s rarities too – plus full notes in both English and French. Titles include "Awash", "Waa Silleen Indararuu", "Eshurruru", "Si Jaalallee", "Si Inhanbisin Warri", and "Abbaa Lafa". CD
