The latest from one of the greatest – Horace Andy, still sounding wonderful. This CD combines the best of old, middle and new school, with players like Skully Sims, Sly & Robbie, Style Scott & Bubblers Ogilvie, plus a host of young cats, and some more modern digital sounds. Plus there's some renditions of classics like "Night Nurse" and "Satta Masa Gana", a cover of America's "Horse With No Name" and a bunch of originals. Thirteen tracks in all, spanning the spectrum of modern Lover's, classic roots and mad stepper's rhythms, including the title track, "Johnny Awful", "Dancing Shoes" and "Old Marcus". CD
Two of Fela's greatest collaborative efforts! Upside Down features Fela & Africa 70, with some guest vocals by Sandra Akane Isidore, a key figure in his political development, and the woman who introduced him to the Black Panthers when he was living in LA at the end of the 60s. The two tracks on that album – "Upside Down" and a version of "Go Slow" – still feature a considerable amount of vocals by Fela, but the addition of the female guest makes for a nicely different sound. Music Of Many Colors is a groundbreaking 1980 collaboration with American soul singer/jazz vibist Roy Ayers – and it brings together the best sides of these monster soul talents of the 70s! In keeping with Fela's work, the tracks are long and Afro-tinged, with a complicated groove that grows over the length of the track. And in keeping with Roy's work, the album has a sweet soulful feel, with lots of nice jazzy touches, cool vibes, and great vocals by Roy. Two long tracks, both classics: "2000 Black" and "Africa, Center Of The World". CD
