LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 32

Driving rhythms, heavy percussion, funk and psychedelia filtered through native Haitian and more Caribbean-inflected music - the great Respect LP by the Tabou Combo de Petion-Ville! The handful of records we've been lucky enough to hear over the years by the group have all been exceptional – and this may very well be the best of them! The dexterity of the musicians – the exciting percussion backdrop and these spindly, swirling and hypnotic electric guitars are especially impressive – but everything's really, really great. There are impassioned lead vocals and sweet group backup, some accordion and more instrumentation – with songs that balance moving melodies with some surprisingly tripped out bits of echo and other atmospherics. Titles include "Respect", "Minouche", "Maria", "Alle Lave", "Ti Gran Mou'n", "Bebe Paramount", "Plus Pres De Toi" and "Compas Popcorn". (Limited numbered edition. Comes with a code for free digital download.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Secret Stash, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A weird little record from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – much more laidback than you might expect, and a set with a definite Jamaican influence too!

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A later gem from the Turkish scene of the 70s – one that's got a bit more funky touches than earlier Anatolian rock!

Strawberry Rain, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)
This rare African gem has a cover that looks a bit like an American soul record of the time – and the overall sound is definitely on the more soul-based side of the Zamrock spectrum! The music's almost more heavy on bass than guitar – which creates this flowing groove at the bottom of ... LP, Vinyl record album

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!

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!
