✨✧ Radha Krsna TempleRadha Krsna Temple London ... LP
Apple, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty darn interesting relic from the glory days of the Beatles' Apple Records label – an album of righteous Hare Krishna chants and songs, all produced by George Harrison! The tunes on the set have a playful, sing-song quality that's a bit different from other records of this sort – thanks in part to Harrison's work on the project, which gives the record the sublime and trippy feel of some of his own consciousness-expanding solo work from the time. All tracks have vocals and a bit of instrumentation that includes guitar and a bit of keyboards – and titles include "Sri Guruvastak", "Bhaja Bhakata/Arotrika", "Sri Isopanisad", and "Govinda Jai Jai". CD features a bonus track – "Prayer To The Spiritual Masters". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original US pressing. Cover has wear with split top & bottom seams. Vinyl plays with clicks and crackles.)

✨✧ Wally BadarouBack To Scales To-Night ... LP
Barclay/Expansion (UK), 1980. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great early solo album from Wally Badarou – done before his bigger global records on Island, but at a point when he'd already had great work in the studio, helping out some of the key sessions on the Nassau scene at the end of the 70s! Wally's as much a singer as he is a keyboardist here – and the album has a vibe that reflects its initial release on the French scene – kind of Caribbean via Paris, with just the right attempts the give the whole thing a bit of a modern soul spin. There's a few nice instrumentals on the set – "London Town" and "Lady Finger Blue" – and other titles include "One Day Won't Give It Away", "Back To Scales Tonight", "Sing Me Your Song", "Dream On The Sand", "Preachin", and "She Turns Me On".

✨✧ CymandeSecond Time Round ... LP
Janus, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy bass, tight percussion, and a wonderfully trippy groove – the stunning second album from Cymande, and one of our funk favorites from the 70s! These guys have a sound that's completely unique – a vibe that mixes African and Jamaican influences up in the heady London scene of the early 70s – with results that were years ahead of their time, and which still go onto blow many minds all these years later! The bass alone is worth the price of admission – as dubby as anything from Kingston, but with a tighter focus – one that drives some sinister lines from the vocals, and which gets strong support from lots of lively conga passages. There's a slight stoner undercurrent, but the sound of the set is never sleepy at all – and titles include the classic "Anthracite", "Fug", and "Them & Us" – plus "Genevive", "Willie's Headache", "For Baby Ooh", "Bird", and "Crawshay". (Soul, Global Grooves) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ OsibisaHeads ... LP
MCA, 1972. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really wonderful third album from Osibisa – and a record that really crystallizes the group's sound into a trademark blend of African roots and more progressive-styled jamming! There's a mode here that's perfect for the cross-cultural London of the post-colonial 70s – a style that brings many strands of music into the capital, and mixes them up with some of the headier styles going down at the time. Bits of highlife echo alongside more tribally-based percussion – but most of the instrumentation on the set also has a strong ear for jazzy changes, especially during the flute and keyboards passages that make the record so great. Titles include "Kokorokoo", "Che Che Kule", "Sweet Sounds", "Sweet America", and "Do You Know". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a light stain along the opening with some flaking on the edge.)
