✨✧ Letta MbuluFree Soul ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Free soul – and funky soul! The album's one of Letta's best ever, thanks to some nice chunky production from David Axelrod – really kicking up the groove and helping Letta hit a righteous sound that's miles past her earlier recordings. The vocals are incredible – lightly dancing with some amazing touches – as Axe gets the rhythms all into get with a warm blend of South African instrumentation and late 60s Capitol soul. The whole thing's tremendous – and titles include "Gumba Gumba", "Kukuchi", "West Wind", "What More Could Be Right", "Mamani", "Ade", "Welele", and "Olu Ati Ayo". LP, Vinyl record album
(A nice copy!)

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
