LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 32

Wild stuff – and one of the coolest compilations we've ever seen from the global scene! The set documents some early underground explorations of rocking rhythms – unusual use of electric instrumentation and R&B-styled production, mostly from far-flung sources, and served up with a fair bit of exotic touches too! The package features notes on each track, which helps tie the music together in a nice way – and although the 10" album is short, it packs a mighty punch. Titles include "Samisen Boogie Woogie" by Ichimaru, "Skokiaan" by Cold Storage Comission, "Rak Ron Ying Kwa Det" by Gunga Din, "Zaino Ya Zaino" by Moahammed Abdel Wahab, "La Buena Vida" by Los Golden Boys, "Whistlin Boogie" by Sister Slocum & Her Little Brother, and "Eena Meena Deeka" by Kishor Kumar.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Mississippi, Late 20s/1930s/1940s. New Copy
A great selection of very early calypso work – all recorded in Trinidad, originally issued on 78s, and with a very different sound than later, more popular versions of the genre! These tracks have a great gritty feel, and lots of jazzy inflections next to the vocals – echoes of other ... LP, Vinyl record album

Forget that you can't understand the language, forget that you may not have heard the style before – this music is amazing, and completely captivating right from the start!

Mississippi, Early 70s. New Copy
Not the kind of Mexican music you're likely to hear at your local taqueria – and instead a set of tracks that reach back to Mayan music traditions, and come across with a powerfully folkloric feel! The sounds were all recorded in Chiapas, in the best Folkways style – never polished or ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mississippi/Little Axe, Early 60s. New Copy
Beautiful work from Ti Paris – a Haitian guitarist who works here in a relatively stripped-down setting – usually just his voice and acoustic guitar, light percussion, and occasional chorus vocals! The approach is quite different than later Haitian music we know – and has this ... LP, Vinyl record album

La Paix
Mississippi, 2012. New Copy
A group with a great blend of old and new modes – a mix of rootsy sounds from their native Mali, and some more focused guitar lines that really help revolutionize their music! The notes bill Alkibar Gignor as a "garage rock band" – and while we think that's a bit of a stretch ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sahel Sounds, 2012. New Copy
A mindblowing follow-up to the first Saharan Cellphone collection – and like that one, a set that's comprised of music from underground sources in contemporary Mali – pulled from the memory cards of local cellphones! Don't think that the music's tinny or amateurish, though – as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sahel Sounds/Mississippi, New Copy
Field recordings of Western Sahelian guitar music – recorded by Christopher Kirkley from 2009-2011 – and an evocative aural trip to the region, courtesy Sahel Sounds and Mississippi!

Mississippi, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A heavy helping of Ethiopian grooves – pulled from the later volumes of the legendary Ethiopiques series, and served up here on a unique vinyl collection! The tunes are a nice mix of some of the best Ethio styles of the early 70s – and include a few standout funky numbers, plus some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mississippi/Domino Sound, 1960s. New Copy
Seminal sounds from SE Rogie – one of the most important palm wine artists to emerge from Sierra Leone in the 60s! Rogie sings in this wonderfully fluid style alongside his well-plucked guitar – which rings out with these bright tones that really illuminate the lyrics, but also ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ammalele
Mississippi/Little Axe/Domino Sound, 1976. New Copy
One of the rarer Ethiopian recordings we've heard from the 70s – and one of the most compelling, too! The sounds here are just as haunting as more familiar Ethiopian music, but also have a nicely unbridled feel too – almost a bit rough at times, especially in the way the rhythms unfurl ...

Yekte
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy
Unusual sounds from Alpay – an artist who perfectly shows the unique east/west crossroads that ran through the Turkish scene of the 70s! At one level, Alpay's as Western as you might guess from his look on the cover – and attempts here to serve up rockish tracks aimed at the mainstream ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Explosion
Desco/Daptone, 1998. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest grooves from the legendary Desco Records years – a brilliant album of modern Afro Funk done by The Daktaris – in a groove that's just as hard-hitting as any of Fela's work from the 70s! The album was one of the first to bring back an older African style to current ... LP, Vinyl record album
