FelaOriginal Sufferhead (Capitol) ... LP
Capitol, 1984. Very Good+ ... $33.99
As with other Africa 70 releases, 2 side long afro jams, with a strong pulsing groove percolating throughout. The set's got amazing keyboards, with this strange other-worldly sound that makes it feel like Sun Ra has suddenly joined the group, and the arrangements are nice and tight, in spite of the fact that they're a bit more sophisticated than other LPs from the time. Titles include "Power Show" and "Original Sufferhead". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing. Cover has light wear & a promo stamp.)

Fela KutiBlack President ... LP
EMI, 1984. Very Good+ ... $49.99
A great one from Fela – tight and outtasite, with one of our favorite tracks ever by him – "ITT", also known as "International Thief Thief"! The record's got a clean and simple approach to the groove that's right up there with the best of the Afrika 70 era – lots of snapping beats at the bottom, and snaking horns that really make the tracks cook! Titles include "ITT", "Sorrow Tears & Blood", and "Colonial Mentality". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label US Capitol pressing. Cover has a promo stamp & some light wear.)

✨✧ Tak ShindoMganga! ... CD
Edison/Modern Harmonic, 1958. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A fantastic bit exotica from Tak Shindo – quite rootsy at times, in a way that really lives up to the cover – and which makes the whole thing a lot more striking than Shindo's other big album on Capitol at the time! The instrumentation is filled with heavy percussion and rhythms, often recorded with a lot of echo – and peppered with these chanting vocals that are totally great – much moodier than more mainstream exotica. Imagine Les Baxter going deeper into the jungle – and you've got a good idea of the vibe here – as the instrumentation goes way beyond mere "primitive sounds" – with some Latin jazz inspiration and other global accents seamlessly working their way into a richly-layered sound! Titles include "Mombasa Love Song", "Nyoba Festival", "Slave Chains of Mtumwa", "Mganga", "Watusi Drum Dance", and "Port of Trinkitat". (Now Sound, Global Grooves) CD
Also available Mganga! ... LP 23.99
