Wild MagnoliasThey Call Us Wild ... CD
Barclay/Polygram (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
The obscure 2nd album by The Wild Magnolias – much harder to find than the group's first American record! The sound here is similar to their debut – a Meters-driven approach to New Orleans funk, served up in a catchy blend of tight rhythms, raspy vocals, and some well-chosen keyboard bits that give the tunes a slightly electric funk sound – much more straight funk than the New Orleans cliches that were cropping up at the time! The Turbington Brothers are helping out the group a heck of a lot on sax and keyboards – and the album's got a sinister groove that's very much in the best New Orleans funk tradition, yet without falling into any of the traps of the tourist trade. Titles include "Injuns Here We Come", "Fire Water", "New Suit", "We're Gonna Party", "New Kinda Groove", "Ho Na Nae", "Jumalaka Boom Boom", and "Ah Anka Ting Tang Boo Shanka Boo". CD

Wild MagnoliasWild Magnolias ... LP
Polydor, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Nicely done reissue of this classic New Orleans funk featuring backing from the "New Orleans Project" that includes the Gaturs' Willie Tee, Earl Turbinton, and other Crescent City session stalwarts like Larry Panna and Julius Farmer. Includes lots of tracks that rocked the rare groove scene in the 80's, including "Soul Soul Soul" and "Corey Died On The Battlefield" – both the source of more than a few samples over the years. With nice sweet keyboards by Willie Tee, and a good funky New Orleans sound that you'll be hard pressed to beat! LP, Vinyl record album

Wild TchoupitoulasWild Tchoupitoulas ... CD
Island/Mango, 1976. Used ... $3.99
One of the weird Meters-related New Orleans parade bands from the 70s – similar to the group The Wild Magnolias, but with a sound that's more in a New Orleans mode than a 70s funk one. The Meters play on the record, and the group sings most of the vocals as well – and production is by Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn, with that 70s New Orleans choppy style that was making them both buckets of money at the time! Tracks include "Brother John", "Indian Red", "Hey Hey", "Hey Mama", "Meet De Boys On The Battlefront", and a version of "Hey Pocky Way". CD

VariousMojo Club Presents Dancefloor Jazz Vol 7 – Give Me Your Love (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Motor/Universal (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A searing entry into the Mojo Club series – and one that really shows the way the compilations have evolved over the years! The album's heavier on soul music than ever before – but also features some tremendous jazz, Brazilian, and European gems as well – a wonderful set list that really keeps things fresh! Titles include "Give Me Your Love" by The Sisters Love, "Wouri" by Manu Dibango, "Maracaibo" by Michel Legrand, "Take Us Down To The River" by Michael Naura, "Sambao" by Walter Wanderley, "Roots" by Willie Bobo, "Soul Soul Soul" by Wild Magnolias, "Strange Games & Things" by Love Unlimited Orchestra, "Praise The Lord" by Mary Lou Williams, "In Memory Of" by Randy Weston, "Nao Bate O Coracao" by Astrud Gilberto, "Mundo Deserto" by Elis Regina, and the great "El Soul Condor" by Certain Lions & Tigers (a very rare German release from 1970!) Plus, the LP version includes 4 bonus cuts by the likes of Serge Gainsbourg, Ekseption, Os Reis Du Batuque, and Fats Sadi – all very nice rarebits! LP, Vinyl record album
