VariousNigeria Soul Fever – Afro Funk, Disco, & Boogie – West African Disco Mayem ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99 22.98
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.

✨✧ VariousSoul Togetherness 2016 ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wickedly sharp entry in the Soul Togetherness series – and one that maybe features a bit more contemporary material than before! There's a few older tracks from the modern soul years of the late 70s – but most of the work here is contemporary soul from the global underground – brought together in a collection that's especially important, given that the scene has moved so strongly to digital releases and one-off singles! These tracks are partly from that hinterland, and partly from the well-chosen range of cuts that we've come to expect from Expansion Records and DJ Richard Searling – a talent who's been running the Soul Togetherness empire for 30 years, and really knows his way around a track. Titles include "Don't Quit" by Deiphuis & Eastar with Jocelyn Brown, "Sunshine" by Los Charly's Orchestra, "I Got To Party" by SouLutions, "Just Talk To Me (boogie back rmx)" by Tracy Hamlin, "No Limit (ext mix)" by Breakwater, "Stranger (back to the future mix)" by Farina Miss, "Adieu" by Trina Broussard, "I Can Feel It (Soulshy mix)" by Beat Rivals, "Never Loved Nobody" by Puff Johnson, "Lotta Love (ext orig version)" by Nicolette Larson, "What I Done Wrong" by Big Lee Dowell & The Cannonballas, "Just Whatcha Like" by Zo with Joi, "All In The Name Of Love" by Seest, and "You & I (spider edit)" by Ronnie Jones.

✨✧ VariousSurinam Funk Force – More Boogie & Disco Funk From The Surinamese Dance Floors ... CD
Rush Hour (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A huge range of funky soul cuts from a very surprising source – the nation of Surinam, which didn't earn its independence until the mid 70s – which then seemed to pave the way for a big wave of wonderful music like this! The cuts often have a groove that's more northern hemisphere club than you'd expect from the nation's South American locale – and given that the nation was previously under the control of the Dutch, there's a lot of back/forth action here with European sounds, styles, and studios – which results in some great grooves that have a really unique hybrid in their approach! Rhythms are strong, but never too slick – never totally polished, as in a Euro disco mode – and instead maybe feel like some of the best underground New York material of the period – especially the sort that was drawing influence from communities of new immigrants. Some tracks have straightforward vocals, others have more of a group chant vibe – and most cuts have at least one key jazzy element, which really sharpens up the sound. Titles include "Happines" by Errol De La Fuente, "Born To Boogie" by Steve Watson, "Craziest" by Sonny Khoeblal, "The Funky G" by Sumy, "Love Dance" by Eddie Tailor, "Kaseko Attack" by Ronald Snijders, "Jamasa Roro" by Astaria, "Tirsa Song" by Sound Track Orchestra & Silvy, "Jhoom Le" by Cyntia, "Freedom Is The Thing" by Langa Langa, and "Jammin With The Jam Band" by Jam Band 80.

✨✧ VariousSvenska Shakers – R&B Crunchers, Mod Grooves, Freakbeat, & Psych Pop From Sweden 1964 to 1968 ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Cool combos from the Swedish scene of the 60s – a surprising north European hotbed of garagey grooves that were every bit as gritty as sounds from the US! In fact, these guys owe nothing to The Seeds or Sonics – as most are recording at right around the same time, and have a similarly rough-edged approach that's totally great – heavy guitars, often turned up to the point of distortion – lots of romping rhythms from frenetic drums – and vocals that maybe borrow a bit of the tunefulness of the Brit Invasion generation, but which are a bit more sinister overall! Most of these cuts are way more than just indie obscurities, too – as the bulk of the work here was recorded by big labels in Sweden – Decca, Columbia, Parlophone, and others – which results in superb production and presentation that really fits the style of the music. The Swedes kept their garage scene going for many years later – with superb work well into the early 90s – but this superbly-selected, 2CD set is the wellspring of that long cultural tradition – with 41 titles that include "Fantasy Island" by The Tages, "Don't Run & Hide" by Stringtones, "I Want To Live" by Mascots, "Bo Bo Boogie Pack" by Annabee Nox, "Misery Is Such A Mystery" by John Julian & Curt Gorans, "Smiling" by Darling, "A Flower In My Garden" by The Hep Stars, "I Set A Fire" by Science Poption, "Baby I Want To Know" by Fools, "Hurt By Love" by Deans "Let Me Show You Who I Am" by Shanes, "Do Ano" by Namelosers, "Daddy Rolling Stone" by Horanges, and "Come On" by Moonjacks.
