Willie Bobo & the Bo-GentsDo What You Want To Do ... LP
Sussex, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Incredible work by Willie Bobo – a slamming record of hard funky instrumentals, one that sounds different than any of his other albums! The record's a killer all the way through – a mixture of Latin and deep 70s funk, one of the few perfect fusions of the styles, held up beautifully all the way through the set. We've always liked Willie a lot, but honestly, we don't know how he managed to make a record this funky – but we're also not arguing, just enjoying the grooves with tremendous delight and surprise. Great all the way through, and includes the break cuts "Do What You Want to Do", "Broasted or Fried", and "Soul Foo Young" – plus a version of "Dindi", which, for some reason, Willie seemed to record every chance he got! Other titles include "Shut Up & Pay Attention", "Come Together", and "Never You Mind". (Soul, Latin) LP, Vinyl record album

Dianne & CaroleFeeling The Pain ... LP
Speed, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the weirdest, coolest Latin Soul albums we've ever heard – the only offering ever from the duo of Dianne & Carole – two female singers who come off with a great deal of enthusiasm on the set! That's our way of saying that the ladies are a bit rough on the vocals – but that's also part of the charm of the set – as the record's got a really messed-up feel, of the sort that we really love from Latin Soul records like this! The great Louie Ramirez handled a good number of the arrangements, with help from Joe Simmons on the other tracks – and many of the numbers have that upbeat, catchy groove that was the Speed label trademark at the time – a sound that was quite different than the modes at Fania or Tico. Titles include excellent tracks "The Fuzz" and "Latin Rhythm" – plus "Feelin' The Pain", "I See the Lovelight", "The Boy Across The Street", "Water Brown", and a hip cover of "Do You Know The Way To San Jose". Very groovy stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

Drummers Of The Societe Absolument GuininVodou Drums In Haiti 2 – The Living Gods of Haiti – 21st Century Ritual Drums & Spirit Possession ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 29.99
An album with an ancient-looking image on the cover, but one that actually represents the continuing tradition of ritual percussion in the Haitian scene – a fantastic musical legacy that began with voodoo practices in the 18th century, but which has continued to transform as the years moved on! The rhythms here are wonderfully complex – at a level that's maybe even more sophisticated than some of the Afro-Cuban sounds from Havana, partly because percussion is the only instrumentation on the performances – so the various drums have to carry a lot in the way of other sonic song elements too! The recording quality is wonderful – vibrant, but never too commercial or polished – and as always with Soul Jazz, the presentation is open and honest, with never any attempt to pander or simplify. Titles include "Patorelle", "Ti Mole", "Doki", "Tichampet", "Indien", "Kalipso", "Banda", "Raboday", and "Bolero". (Global Grooves, Latin) LP, Vinyl record album
