Mahmoud AhmedEre Mela Mela (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Buda/L'Arome/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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 VariousEthiopiques Vol 7 – Mahmoud Ahmed: Ere Mela Mela ... CD
Buda (France), 1975. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Another great volume of Ethiopiques! Volume 7 of Ethiopiques series is another expanded re-issue of an LP by Mahmoud Ahmed originally released in 1975. Though there seems to be an abundance of songs by Ahmed from 1975 on volumes 1 and 3, we can't find any overlap with the songs on this album. The songs are the same sort of fusion of American soul and jazz with shuffling rhythms of Ethiopian music. Features "Belomi Benna" and "Bemen Sebeb Letlash". CD

New VariousEthiopiques Volume 28 – Ali Birra – Great Oromo Music ... CD
Buda (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
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
