Francis BebeyAfrican Electronic Music 1975 to 1982 ... LP
Born Bad (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
Not what you might expect when shopping for African music – unique electronic sounds from Cameroon musician Francis Bebey – as heavy on keyboards as other 70s work is on guitar! There's still plenty of acoustic elements in the mix though, too – lots of earthy percussion at the bottom, which links some of these tracks to other styles of the time – even though some of the more unusual tunes here have these great electronic sounds that almost feel like they came from the late 70s German underground! The mix of modes is breathtaking – as if Moebius and Roedelius recorded with musicians from Lagos – shaking off the colder sounds of the Conny Plank side of the spectrum, to come up with a warm new style that's really unique! Titles include "La Condition Masculine", "Sahle", "The Coffee Cola Song", "Super Jingle", "Pygmy Love Song", "Agatha", "Catching Up", and "Divorce Pygmee". LP, Vinyl record album
(2LPs – and a very nice package!)

✨✧ Francis BebeyPsychedelic Sanza 1982 to 1984 ... LP
Born Bad (France), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Totally cool, totally amazing music from the enigmatic Francis Bebey – a contemporary on the early 80s African scene of William Onyeabor, and an equally experimental artists! Bebey used a fair bit of electronics, but often with sounds that had acoustic roots – in this case, the ultra cool sansa, which is a similar thumb piano to the kalimba – amplified here in really great ways, and mixed with some moody, dark elements throughout! The music has much more of a 70s vintage than you'd guess from the dates on the record – thanks partly to the raw percussion, and very offbeat production – which sometimes is mellow, sometimes bursts out in these shocking waves of sound. Titles include "Sanza Tristesse", "Forest Nativity", "Sunny Crypt", "Ngoma Likembe", "Guinee", "Di Saegi", and "Binta Madiallo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousAfro Exotique – Adventures In The Leftfield 1972 to 1982 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
A set that definitely lives up to its title – as all the tracks are from the more exotic, unusual side of the Afro Funk spectrum – including some great 70s experiments with American soul, Cuban percussion, and even a touch of reggae too! The package is lean on notes, but has a really great array of selections – interesting tracks that break way past the usual, with titles that include "The Coffee Cola Song" by Francis Bebey, "On My Way" by Aura, "Lamento Cubano" by Amara Toure & Orchestre Massako, "Eben Reggae" by Uta Bella, "Coconut" by Dan Lacksman, "Pesse Mi Buntare" by Yta Jourais, "My Girl Reggae" by Black Reggae, "Let My Music Take You" by Nel Oliver, "L'Enfant Et La Gazelle" by Myriam Makeba, and "Soledad" by Chakachas. LP, Vinyl record album
