VariousNigeria Soul Fever – Afro Funk, Disco, & Boogie – West African Disco Mayem (3LP set – with download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $29.99 31.99
The Nigerian groove of the 70s – way past the familiar modes of Fela Kuti, and served up here in a range of artists who followed on a huge second wave of soul that soared from Lagos and beyond in the second half of the decade! The music here opens up in a sweet range of different styles – including bits of club and boogie that have come into the scene to open up Nigerian funk in more global modes for the dancefloor – blending African roots with American currents, in a sound that's completely unique – and which is way better than some of the Afro-disco modes that were coming from Europe a the time! As usual with the folks at Soul Jazz, the set's an ear-opening work of genius – from the superb track selection, to the very thorough notes and research – which really do a great job of presenting this side of Nigerian funk that's always been a bit eclipsed by some of the bigger names on the scene. Liner notes are by dancefloor historian Bill Brewster – and titles include "Do The Funkro" by Joni Haastrup, "You Can't Change A Man" by Christy Essien, "Afrikana Disco" by Akin Richards & The Executives, "Ocheche" by Don Bruce & The Anges, "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo" by Tee Mac, "Get Up & Dance" by Benis Cletin, "Enoviyin" by Colomach, "Nwaeze" by Jimmy Sherry & The Musik Agents, "Wake Up Your Mind" by Joni Haastrup, "Disco Dancing" by Angela Starr, "Mr Been To" by Arakatula, "Living Every Day" by Tee Mac with Marjorie Barnes, "Wake Up Africa" by Arakatula, and "Soul Fever" by Benis Cletin.

✨✧ VariousNew York Noise 2 – Music From The New York Underground 1977 to 1984 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A second great dip into the arty New York scene of the punk, post-punk, and no wave years – and one that goes even farther than the first volume of New York Noise! This time around, Soul Jazz have gotten past the the obvious markers of the scene – and have dug deep to come up with some especially great nuggets lost in the shifting sands and record racks of the time. The vibe is a bit noisier than before, but there's still a fair bit of groove-conscious tunes – a great blend of experimental, arty, and post-punk party – really capturing the openly creative spirit of New York at the time. Our hats are off to Soul Jazz for going beyond those slightly bigger names who issued full albums – as they've really made an effort here to pull out tracks by groups you always hear mentioned, but who mostly just recorded the odd single or compilation track – usually for smaller and long-defunct labels. As always with Soul Jazz, the package features great notes on the music – and a total of 16 tracks that include "Ungawa (part 2)" by Pulsallama, "Hunter Gatherer" by Mofungo, "Not Bite" by Red Transistor, "Black Box Disco" from the soundtrack to Vortex, "Back Downtown" by Certain General, "Drastic Classicism" by Rhys Chatham, "Radio Rhythm (dub)" by Clandestine with Ned Sublette, "Move It Time" by Gliroius Strangers, "Tiger Stripes" by Felix (with Arthur Russell & Nicky Siano), "My Hands Are Yellow" by Del-Byzanteens (with Jim Jarmusch), "Tanajura" by Don King, "Sham Shack" by UT, and "I Am Not Seeing That You Are Here" by Jill Kroesen.
