VariousZaire 74 – The African Artists ... CD
Wrasse, 1974. New Copy 2CD ... $17.99 19.99
Amazing music from an amazing moment – the legendary Zaire 74 concerts that took place before the Rumble In The Jungle fight between Muhammad Ali and George Frazier! The moment was one of great pride and power – and although the concert performances have become the stuff of legend over the years, this is the first time they've ever been properly issued – presented as a huge collection of tracks with very detailed notes! Other music from this festival has been issued – famous concerts by James Brown and Fania All Stars – but these tracks are all by African artists, and really show the tremendous cultural activity taking place on the continent at the time – in a mix of modes that are fierce and funky throughout. It's crazy that we've had to wait so long to hear this music – but the quality of the tracks is more than worth it – in a triple-length package that features smoking performances by Miriam Makeba, Franco & TP OK Jazz, Abeti, Orchestre Stukas, Abumba Masikini, Tabu Ley Rochereau & Afrisa, and Pembe Dance Troup. 34 tracks in all – and a really wonderful package!

✨✧ VariousAfrican Pearls Vol 1 – Congo/Rumba On The River 1954 to 1968 ... CD
Syllart (UK), Mid 50s-1960s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of classic Congolese rhumba work from the 50s and 60s – music that has some elements of the Cuban style of the genre, but which really takes off on its own in whole new ways! The guitar is an essential part of the rhythms here – dancing along with percussion at a level that makes it a important to the groove as it is to the melody – a distinction that didn't hit American music as strongly until James Brown in the 60s. Most of the tracks here have vocals too – taking off in fluid, free ways that often diverge nicely from the core rhythms of the tunes – in ways that add an extra layer of musical complication, even if you're not privy to the meaning of the language! The 2CD package features a whopping 44 tracks in all – with notes in both English and French – and titles that include "Miguel Canta", "Alphonso", "Le Temps Passe", and "Si Tu Bois Beaucoup" by OK Jazz; "Permission", "Guantanamera", "Sey Sey", and "Bina Ringa" by African Fiesta & Tabu Ley; "Maria Valente" by Rock A Mambo; "Bantous Pachanga" by Bantous De La Capitale; "Jamais Kolonga" by Tino Baroza; and "Tabalissimo" by Tabu Ley.

✨✧ Gamelan Semar PegulinganGamelan Semar Pegulingan – Gamelan Of The Love God ... CD
Nonesuch (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautifully evocative work on the Balinese gamelan – music that's maybe not as sharp as other recordings from that particular island – with a warmly flowing vibe that comes from the melodic cascading of tuned percussion, vibes, and gongs! There's still a focused, rhythmic feel to the music – but an approach that's maybe not as intense as some of the starker Balinese gamelan recordings – almost languorous at points, maybe in keeping with the "love god" mentioned in the title – with a sort of ebb and flow of sounds that's completely hypnotic! Titles "Tabuh Gari", "Gambang", "Tabuh Pisan", "Barong", "Sinom Ladrang", and the extended "Legong Kraton Playon", which takes up most of side two! CD
