Jimmy MawiJimmy Mawi EP (10 inch pressing) ... LP
Pathe/Soundway (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 16.98
Wicked work from Jimmy Mawi – one of the coolest cats to work on the Kenyan scene of the 70s! Jimmy hailed from Madagascar, but cut his best work in Nairobi – and steps out here in this really weird, messed-up version of Afro Funk – one that also has plenty of bluesy riffs on the guitar! Jimmy uses a lot more distortion than some of his contemporaries – not just on his own guitar, but also on the keyboards on the tunes – which, when mixed with the occasional vocals, creates this fierce funky sound that's even rawer than most American work of the time! This EP only features four tracks – but that's more than enough, as the tracks are all plenty great – with titles that include "Black Star Blues", "Let Me Keep Away From You", "Black Dialogue", and "I Want Get Up".
