LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 32

The coolest grooves we've ever heard from percussionist Henri Guedon – a really wonderful blend of Latin, Caribbean, and jazz-based influences – all filtered into a very special sound! There's plenty of percussion at the core, but there's also some sweet keyboards too – used sparely, so that the album's not a funky electric one – but in just the right ways to bring in a cool sort of 70s funk touch to the whole record – almost in some of the ways you'd find with Nuyorican funk of the same time! Vocals are great, too – mostly in French – but the instrumental element is what really moves us – and it moves us plenty! Titles include "Brujeira", "Tou Patou Feme", "Guajira Contestation", "Bomba Miscien", "Vulcano", and "Marcel Song". (Beautiful pressing – super heavy cover and vinyl!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Fortuna, 1978. New Copy Gatefold
Cool compelling grooves from Grazia – sung in Turkish, released in late 70s Israel, and a mad mix of styles throughout!

Simmer Down
Strawberry Rain, Mid 70s. New Copy
It's impossible to simmer down with a groove this great – a wicked blend of African funk and fuzzier psych touches – all served up by Nigeria's legendary Survival!

Country Of Guns
Tramp (Germany), 2008. New Copy
Hypnotic grooves from Kaleta – a searing set of Afrobeat titles that really burns with a lot of energy!

Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
One of the coolest collections of underground Thai rock we've seen – and it certainly is The Heavier Sound Of the Luk Thung Underground – including a uniquely Thai vision flavored with a Black Sabbath riff, psych makeovers of Thai folklore, and a bunch great tunes that meld Bangkok life ...

Bennito Sextet Plus One
Mardi Gras, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Boogaloo – and nothing but! This is the kind of groovy Latin soul record you always hope to find when digging for Latin sides – and it's got that perfect mix of soul vocals and sock-boogaloo grooves that some of the best young combos were turning out in the late 60s. Bennito and crew ... LP, Vinyl record album

El Exigente
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A stunning album from Orquesta Harlow – one of their wildest of the 60s, and filled with delights!
