✨✧ VariousSpace Echo – The Mystery Behind The Cosmic Sound Of Cabo Verde Finally Revealed ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $15.99
Extraterrestrial synths and tight, dancefloor-ready grooves from Cabo Verde – compiled here on one the most mindblowing Analog Africa collections in years! The well-detailed, beautiful-illustrated notes (an always welcome feature in Analog Africa set) tells the story of a cargo ship full of Korg, Rhodes, Moog, Farfisa and Hammond synths and keyboards – bound for an 1968 expo in Rio – turning up on a Cabo Verde island instead, and the rest is history! There's a clarity and consistency in both sound quality and in the performances, track-by-track, that's pretty incredible. A big part of the consistency is Cabo Verde musical legend Paulino Vieira and his group Voz De Cabo Verde serving as the band on around half the material here, but the whole thing is great – just a killer mix of regional sounds with wild spacey instrumental accents! Titles include "Pinta Manta" by Antonio Sanches, "Dia Ja Manche" by Dioniso Maio, "Morti Sta Bidjacu" by Jose Casimiro, "Pontin Pontin" by Bana, "Mundo D'Margura" by Tchiss Lopes, "Po D'Terra" by Joao Cirilo, "Sintado Na Pracinha" by Americo Brito, "Djal Bal Si Camin" by Antonio Dos Santos, "Stebo Cu Anabela" by Abel Lima and more.

✨✧ VariousAfrican Scream Contest – Raw & Psychedelic Afro Sounds From Benin & Togo 70s ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest African collections we've seen in years – a beautiful assortment of untapped grooves from the 70s, put together with a massive booklet that sets a whole new standard in packaging! The grooves here are different from other Afro Funk collections of the time – definitely more in the raw and psychedelic territory promised by the title, and filled with hard-edged vocals that surely know how to scream! There's still plenty of funk in the rhythms, but the execution is often quite unusual – less directly influenced by American soul, and very much off in its own direction. Lots of choppy guitar, too – and the set comes with a massive 42 page booklet filled with full color images and loads of notes. Titles include "Gbeti Madjro" by Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo De Cotonou, "Mi Ma Kpe Dji" by Picoby Band D'Aborney, "Mi Kple Dogbekpo" by Lokonon Andre & Les Volcans, "Oya Ka Jojo" by Les Volcans De La Capital, "Ou C'Est Lui Ou C'Est Moi" by Vincent Ahehehinnou, "Wait For Me" by Roger Damawuzan, "Leki Santchi" by Napo De Mi Amor Et Ses Black Devils, "Ye Nan Lon An" by Orchestre Super Jheevs Des Paillotes, and "Houiou Djin Nan Zon Aklumon" by Discafric Band.

✨✧ Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De CotonouSkeletal Essences Of Afro Funk – 1969 to 1980 ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title gets it perfectly right on this sweet little set – as the grooves are raw and stripped down – often just to the core elements of Afro Funk! The music may be the most hard-hitting we've ever heard from this legendary combo – and it's served up beautifully in this well-selected compilation, right down to the detailed notes on the group and their long journey in sound! There's a core groove here that goes way beyond the boundaries of nation or culture – and which is plenty appealing to ears that have only ever been trained on American funk – and even more so on those who dig the great African sounds of the 70s. Plenty of heavy drums and ultra-cool guitar – and titles include "Adjro Mi", "A O O Ida", "Pourquoi Pas", "Ecoute Ma Melodie", "Min We Tun So", "Ai Gabani", and "Aku We Non Houme". 15 tracks on 2LPs.
