VariousGroove Club 2 – Cambodia Rock Spectacular ... LP
Lion/Get On Down, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99
A pretty incredible compilation of Cambodia Rock – the best one we've come across – classic original Khmer Rock from scene pioneer Sinn Sisamouth and many more! The set as an effort to present this fun, groovy and yes, spectacular Cambodian Rock as it was originally heard by the people in its pre-Pol Pot heyday – before the original vinyl releases were hidden away and eventually circulated via low quality cassette bootlegs – and it sounds great! Awesome stuff all around, much of it with a raw garage psych vibe with fuzzed out guitars, heavy drums, woozy organ and male & female lead vocals – always with a groovy rhythm. Includes "Do You No Wrong Again" by Thra Kha Band, "Khnyom Jah Karake" by Tet Somnang & Meas Samon, "Pros Chang Reiy" and "Pail Loung Rom (Go To Dance)" by Pan Ron, "Jet Snaeh Theang Nov" and "Yuvachon Yuvatey Samai Tmai (New Generation Youth" by Sinn Sisamouth & Ros Dereysothea, "Duang Netra" and "Satt Thee Thuy" by Sinn Sisamouth, "Bong Rau Roub Khnyom" by Ros Sereysothea, "Youm Os Tirk Pnake" by Pov Vannary and more. 19 tracks on 2LPs in a nice gatefold sleeve with fairly extensive notes on the back cover and inside the gatefold.

✨✧ Amancio D'SilvaKonkan Dance ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A previously unissued album from Indian guitarist Amancio D'Silva – recorded during his legendary run of work at Lansdowne Studios, but making its first-ever appearance here! The work on the set is every bit as far-reaching and progressive as some of D'Silva's official releases – and like those sides, this one does a tremendous job of blending complicated guitar lines, unusual rhythms, and some super-hip instrumentation! Amancio has a way of playing guitar that's a bit like Gabor Szabo – airy and exotic at times, with a free-flowing quality that's really explored nicely here on the longish tunes on the set. Players include Don Rendell on saxophone, Stan Tracey on piano, and Alan Branscombe on flute, vibes, and electric piano – but best of all is the use of sitar and tabla on the record – often employed sparingly, but in a way that adds some great echoes of Indian music. Titles include "A Street In Bombay", "What Maria Sees", "A Song For Francesca", and "Konkan Dance". (Jazz, Global Grooves) CD

✨✧ GilfemaGilfema + 2 ... CD
ObliqSound, 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
The Gilfema trio's expanded here by the addition of two horns – clarinet and bass clarinet, which are both used to shade in the album's tones nicely – expanding the range of the core guitar, drums, and bass – with slightly angular elements and a great sense of color! As before, singer/guitarist Lionel Loueke is the key force of the album – really making things sparkle with his warmly inventive approach to music – steeped a bit in older traditions, but delivered with some jazz-based phrasing that's mighty nice – clear and clean, yet never too sanded-down or smooth. There's a charm here that recalls small group African jazz sides from years back – although the music is never straight jazz either – and titles include "Cove", "Festa", "Morning Dew", "Your World", "Salome", "Twins", and "Question Of Perspective".
