VariousMr Bongo Record Club – Vol 1 ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Mr Bongo really goes back to its roots here – and returns to the kind of rare global gems that first made us fall in love with the label in the first place! Over 20 years ago, Mr Bongo were one of the key global forces in opening up people's ears to the sounds of funk and soul from around the globe – digging up rare nuggets from out of the way places that might have echoed American styles, but turned them on their ear – or the kinds of cuts that were completely unique, but which could stand next to the kind of funky 45s that were being sampled for hip hop! This collection brings together some of the best cuts that continue that legacy – some rare singles, some obscure European tracks, and lots of others you never would have discovered otherwise – with titles that include "Deixa A Tristeza", "Piranha" by Alipio Martins, "Seara De Oxala" by Barbosa, "Mathar" by Dave Pike Set, "Freak" by Tappa Zukie, "Mama Hot Daddy Cool" by Big Youth, "Fish & Funjee" by Lantei Lamptey, "Karam Bani" by Buari, "Handsome Boy (parts 1 & 2)" by The Rwenzoris, "He's Forever" by King James Version, "Chanson D'Un Jour D'Hiver" by Cortez, and "Can't Live Without You" by Connie Laverne.

✨✧ VariousScenery Of Japanese Jazz 2 ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic landscape of Japanese jazz – served up here on a host of tracks that are mostly from small overseas labels in the 70s – and which represent the tremendous flowering of Japanese jazz musicians in the decade! The set is especially strong on contributions from pianists – but these aren't trio tracks rehashing older standards – as many of the numbers also feature excellent saxophonists, and almost all the tracks here are originals – written in that spirited style that makes the newly-confident generation of jazz such a change from the one before. Titles include "7 Time" by Toshinori Kondo, "Straight No Chaser" by Shigeo Maruyama, "Karifua" by Shoji Aketagawa, "Intrepid Fox" by Kazumi Odagiri, "Soul Tomato" by Miyasaka Takashi, "Merry Go Round" by Mabumi Yamaguchi, "Waltz For Baby" by Yasuhiro Kohno, "Dragon Dance" by Makoto Tarashima with Harold Land, "Piranha" by Fumio Karashima, and "Dead Letter" by Tohru Aizawa.
