Fela & Roy AyersMusic Of Many Colors ... LP
Celluloid/Knitting Factory, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 24.99
One of the best soul collaborations ever! Fela and Roy Ayers team up for this whopping album that brings together the best sides of these monster soul talents of the 70s! In keeping with Fela's work, the tracks are long and Afro-tinged, with a complicated groove that grows over the length of the track. And in keeping with Roy's work, the album has a sweet soulful feel, with lots of nice jazzy touches, cool vibes, and great vocals by Roy. Two long tracks, both classics: "2000 Black" and "Africa, Center of the World". Long overdue! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCalabar-Itu Road – Groovy Sounds From South Eastern Nigeria – 1972 to 1982 (2016 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Comb & Razor, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99 28.98
Not the usual sort of Nigerian sounds you'd hear on a collection focused on Lagos – and instead, music that was recorded far from the central city of the nation – often with a much rootsier vibe overall! These tunes still have plenty of funk and jazz in the mix, but they often come across with a more freewheeling, collaborative vibe – as if you've stumbled upon a group jamming in some back alley spot, really enjoying each others' company while they create some magical music. The set is maybe the most thoughtful we've seen so far from the excellent Comb & Razor label – and titles include "Mbre Isong" by Isadico Dance Band Of Nigeria, "Akam Itoro Abasi" by Mansion, "Eyong Erong Uwa" by The Visitors, "Atak Mfat Eyen" by Sunny Risky & The Vitamin Explosion, "Akwa Idim" by Sea Lions, "Suk Usan Idang" by Charles Duke, "Akananwan Isong Idung" by Monica Isaac, and "Eseme Ikpong" by Chief Inyang Henshaw & His Top Ten Aces.
