Hugh Masekela's Next Album

LP (Item 12556) MGM, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 32

One of Hugh's more poppy efforts, but still a nice batch of instrumentals with a good Afro soul groove to them, and the jaunty trumpet sound that was Hugh's stock in trade at the time. Tracks include "Actin' Like A Fool", "If I Needed Someone", "Sounds Of Silence", "Along Comes Mary", "It's Not Unusual", and "From Me To You". (Cover has two cutout imprints and a bit of discoloration due to aging.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Casablanca, 1976. Near Mint-
Hats off to Hugh Masekela – one of the few artists who could record for the Casablanca label and never manage to lose his own sense of sound and spirit! The album's a surprisingly great one, filled with the kinds of subtle touches and earthy soul we've always loved in Hugh's music – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Honest Jons (UK), Mid 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
The roots of Congolese rumba – served up here in a host of cool recordings from the 50s, in a package that really sheds new light on these under-exposed years of the genre! As you'd guess from the title, there's a fair bit of Latin rhythms at play here – a key Cuban contribution back ... LP, Vinyl record album
Diable Du Feu
Electric Cowbell, 2012. Near Mint-
Heady sounds from Karthala 72 – a group with a very vintage sound – one that rings out with plenty of offbeat funky elements, African percussion, and maybe even a sense of bassline borrowed from Colombian music! The group have a wonderful criss-crossing of styles – and this full ... LP, Vinyl record album

Way cooler than the usual score you might expect – as the record not only features the main theme, plus some ethnographic recordings – but also includes cuts by Fela, Toure Kunda, and Youssou N'Dour! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reebop
Island, 1972. Very Good
One of those British sessions from the early 70s that mix African grooves with British prog rock, in a mode that's similar to some of the Ginger Baker albums from the same time. Percussionist Anthony Reebop Kwaku Baah sings on the whole record, but the real strength comes from the ensemble backing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Koto & Flute
World Pacific, 1963. Very Good+
Quite an interesting album – one that pairs the koto work of Kimio Eto with the flute of Bud Shank. Shank's incredible in this setting – really moving away from most of his jazz-based work, and playing with shades and tones that we've never heard before, a perfect accompaniment to the ...

Al Green Is Love
Hi Records, 1975. Very Good
Heavenly soul doesn't get any more heavenly than this! Al's at the height of his powers here, and even though there aren't as many hits on the record, it's still got plenty of nice moments, and the usual stone cold Hi Records soul groove that works beautifully with Green's warmly compressed vocals. ...
