✨✧ VariousRough Guide To Psychedelic Cumbia (with bonus download) ... LP
Rough Guide, Late 60s. New Copy ... On June 24, 2016
Cumbia sounds get trippy – as a host of Latin American artists picked up the electric guitar in the 60s, and really helped transform the style with some psychedelic touches! Most of these tracks feature cumbia rhythms at the core, but take the music far from its Colombian roots – through the use of electric guitar, bits of keyboards, and some mighty cool production modes that often emphasize the freakier, fuzzier elements in the songs – often in ways that are as mindblowing as west coast productions of the time! Make no mistake – the groove is at the core, so there's never too much jamming or overindulgence in the instrumentation – but that also makes for songs that are maybe even more compelling because of their tightness, and the way they reach out for an unusual sound or special twist, even while grooving. Titles include "Inca A Delic" by Sonido Gallo Negro, "Perdido En El Espacio" by Juaneco Y Su Combo, "Bola Bola En El Tres" by Los Wembler's De Iquitos, "La Danza Del Mono" by Los Orientales De Paramonga, "Olivdate De Mi" by La Mermelada De Jose L Carballo, "En El Campo" by Grupo Rosado, "No Hay Vuelta Atras" by Bareto, and "Maria Isabel" by Afro Sound.

VariousNigeria 70 – The Definitive Story Of 1970s Funky Lagos (3LPs/3CDs) ... LP
Afrostrut (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... On May 13, 2016
A fantastic batch of grooves – and a much-needed document of the rich array of funky sounds that were coming out of Nigeria in the 1970s! The country's best known as the homeland of Fela Kuti – an artist who forever changed the face of global funk – but what's not as well known is that there were a number of other artists operating in Fela's shadow, crafting their own interpretation of American soul and African funk during the same generation. This overstuffed package offers a great look (and listen) into that scene – and compiles tracks by a few artists you might already recognize, plus others that are presented here for the first time in such a set. As with other compilations on the Strut label, the notes are very well done, with loads of information and details on the recordings – but even more importantly, the music is fantastic, with a rich array of grooves that blows away most other recent compilations of Afro Funk from the 70s! Titles include "Enjoy Yourself" by Sahara All Stars Band, "Shango" by Peter King, "Dancing Time" by The Funkees, "Ikon Allah" by Bala Miller & The Great Music Pirameeds Of Afrika, "Tire Loma Da Nigbehin" by Monomono, "Kita Kita" by Gasper Lawal, "Agboju Logun" by Shina Williams & His African Percussionists, "Akayan Ekassa" by Sir Victor Uwaifo & His Melody Maesstroes, "Ja Fun Mi (inst)" by Sunny Ade, "Alla Wakbarr" by Ofo The Black Company, "Ifa" by Tunji Oyelana & The Benders, "Jenu Ko Ku" by Fela & Africa 70, "La La La" by Segun Bucknor, and "Orere Elejigbo" by Lijadu Sisters. 3LP set – with a total of 15 tracks, and notes on the inside of the cover on the music!

✨✧ Verckys & Orchestre VeveCongolese Funk, Afrobeat, & Psychedelic Rumba 1969 to 1978 (with download) ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An incredible compilation of work from Congolese sax player Verckys and his L'Orchestre Veve – a set that covers nearly a decade as it runs through a range of exhilarating styles – from heady funk, to psych-steeped rumba, to rawly-percussive Afrobeat! Verckys formed the L'Orchestre Veve after a short stint in Franco Lambo's OK Jazz – and right off the bat, they were breathing even fresher life into what was already a very creative Congolese music scene. There's a lot going on here, and it's all pretty amazing – and since Verckys is a sax player, you might go in thinking the instrumentation will be heavy on horns – but although there's plenty of solos and tight, funky horn punctuation – Verckys is clearly a generous band leader, and allows a diverse backdrop of guitar jamming, organ lines, heavy percussion and more – all to fit some really great vocals over the top. One of the best from Analog Africa in awhile – and that's really saying something – with titles that include "Vassala Hot", "Ya Nini", "Cheka Sana", "Oui Verckys", "Nakobala Yo Denise", "Sex Veve", "Sisi Motema", "Talali Talala", "Zonga Vonvon", "Nakomi Paralise" and "Matnida Comono".
