Swinging Stars Of DominicaLas Mal Parle/Jam Jam ... 7-inch
Sofrito (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99
There's a great romping rhythm to "Las Mal Parle" – almost a cumbia vibe, but a bit different too – as the tune's peppered by some wonderful horns, including this trombonist who really sounds like he's on fire! "Jam Jam" begins with this nicely spacey keyboard line – cool and moogy at the start, then giving way to some more fierce energy from the group, and a great keyboard solo in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Seyoum Gebreyes & Wallias Band/Wallias BandMuziqa Muziqa/Muziqa Silt ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973/1977. New Copy ... $7.99
The drums move hard and fast on "Muziqa Muziqa" – and the organ lines do too – peppering this Ethio groover with a really offbeat sound, while tight horn lines keep a soulful finish over the top – and Seyoum's vocals move up and down in a really incredible range! "Muziqa Slit" is the kind of funky nugget that first got folks digging for Ethiopian cuts many years back – a romping break in the way the drums, bass, and guitar start out the cut – before cool organ and horns come into the mix and make it even more wonderful! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Great stuff! "Wear It On Our Face" is one of their wildest cuts, and starts out with this crazy prepared piano introduction that sounds like it was just lifted from a John Cage record! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Uptown SyndicateHot Oklahoma Nights EP (2 x 7 inch) ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2 x 7 inch ... $19.99
Fast-riffing funk from the Uptown Syndicate – maybe one of the few funk bands we've ever heard from the Oklahoma scene – and certainly one of the grooviest! These guys got their start playing parties at the start of the 70s – most likely with a sound that was more in the southern showband mode – but by the time of these tracks, they've really grown into something great on their own! The upbeat tunes have this incredibly sharp guitar tangled up with the rhythms – played with amazing dexterity, really setting the grooves on fire – and the package's one mellow track is a fantastic harmony soul number, showcasing a whole new side of the group's talents. The Uptown Syndicate never issued a full album – and this four-track collection may be the closest we'll ever get – with titles that include "Just Be Yourself", "Bloated", "Uptown", and "You're A Woman". 7-inch, Vinyl record
