✨✧ VariousMambo Calypso ... LP
Grossoi (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great mix of Latin and Caribbean sounds from the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – music from Cuba, Colombia, Haiti, and Puerto Rico – plus a few island-inspired records from the US as well! The styles here definitely fall near the mambo and calypso promised in the title – but there's also a larger vibe going on, too – as styles and influences criss-cross nicely, at a level that makes the track selection here especially fresh! Titles include "O Look Misery" by Blind Blake, "Cumba Del Caribe" by Pacho Galan, "Jamaicuba" by Mongo Santamaria, "Baila Yemeya" by Celia Cruz, "Strip Tease" by Lord Power, "Besitos De Coco" by Rafael Cortijo, "Ahora Si Hay Melao" by Joseito Mateo, "Mambo Calypso" by Duke Of Iron, and "Cumba Sobre El Mar" by Trio Serenata.

✨✧ VariousAfro Funk Explosion – Motherload From The Motherland ... CD
Explosive, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hodgepodge of older Afro Funk tracks – but a nice one! Unlike other comps of this sort, which are usually chock full of notes, this one has little in the way of information – but we can certainly give it the "thumbs up" for music, because it's got some excellent funky numbers we haven't seen in ages! Titles include "Wanna Do My Thing" by Matata, "Maku Penda" by Mafalme, "Switch No 1" by Who (Ngubani), "Blo" by Blo, "Nkenga Special" by Destruction Nkengas, "Oworchooche" by Roy Stephen Oche & His Matumbo, and "Cocoa" by Assagai. 13 tracks in all! CD
