Radha Krsna TempleRadha Krsna Temple London ... LP
Apple, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
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.)

Muyei PowerSierra Leone In 70s USA (180 gram vinyl with download) ... LP
Soundway (UK), Late 70s. Sealed ... $14.99
A hip group from Sierra Leone – but one who recorded these tracks in the US during the late 70s – which makes for a very unusual hybrid of sounds! The group's original approach was to update regional sounds from their nation, and avoid some of the more commercial cover versions of Anglo hits on the market – but over the years they played a fair bit on the Canary Islands, and then on the west coast of the US – and seemed to pick up a range of funky influences in the process! The result is a sound that's rooted in Africa, but peppered with lots of skittish rhythms and fast instrumental riffing – a bit like some of the post-colonial work on the London and Paris scenes of the time, but a bit different too. The cuts here were all originally issued in the US on the Makossa label – that hotbed of cross-cultural creativity – and titles include "Bi Loko", "Yamba Sowe", "Wali Bena", "Be Patient", and "Ben Ben Bee".
