✨✧ Al JarreauL Is For Lover (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Friday Music, 1986. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Al Jarreau is grooving in a pure modern pop soul mode on this mid 80s set – and it works really, really well – a not-so-surprising creative win even if it's not the jazzy Jarreau record longtime fans may have preferred at the time – one of our favorite mid-decade Nile Rodgers productions! Al's vocals are really excellent, bringing in all the cooing charisma he's capable of and Niles brings the clean, chart ready production – even though this one didn't hit as big as it should have. Titles include "Tell Me What I Gotta Do", "L Is For Lover", "Golden Girl", "Pleasure", "Real Tight", "Give A Little More Lovin" and more. This CD edition includes 3 bonus tracks: "Tell Me What I Gotta Do (12" Extended Mix)", "L Is For Lover (45 RPM Remix Version)" and 'Moonlighting (45 RPM Remix Version)". CD
Also available L Is For Lover ... LP 1.99

✨✧ Orlando JuliusSuper Afro Soul/Orlando's Afro Ideas 1969 to 1972 ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible double pack of African Funk – featuring 2 albums' worth of material by the legendary Orlando Julius! Julius was one of Nigeria's biggest soul artists in the 60s – and has been credited with virtually inventing the Afro Funk sound, and for being the inspiration to some of James Brown's funkier work of the late 60s! Julius came to the US at the end of the 60s, and worked with Hugh Masekela and the Crusaders – but this material is the real deal, his his classic sides from the African scene! First up is Super Afro Soul – a 1966 masterpiece, cut in Africa, and only ever issued in Nigeria. Next is the even bigger compilation Orlando's Afro Ideas – recordings that document Julius' years with his band the Afro Sounders – which evolved from his earlier band the Modern Aces in the mid 60s, following his the Super Afro Soul set. As was the case with that amazing album, Orlando blends the deeply percussive African rhythms with a tightness and a hard wallop learned from American soul and R&B – with some very proud, righteous odes to the spirit of the Nigerian people. The 25 track collection features the amazing cut "James Brown Ride On", which not only serves as a great Nigerian tribute to the American godfather (complete with English lyrics) but it also does a wonderful job of highlighting the cross-cultural elements that make Afrofunk the force that it was! Other tracks include "Home Sweet Home", "Psychedelic Afro Shop", "Mura Sise", "Esamei Sate", "Alo Mi Alo", "Ketekete Koro", "New Apala Afro", "My Girl", "Solo Hit", "Efoye So", "Jagua Nana", "Wakolele", "Ijo Soul", "E Se Rere", "Olulofe", and "Topless".
